#99

“Let Me Belong to You” by Brian Hyland (1961)

Hyland was born in Woodhaven section of Queens.  He studied guitar and clarinet as a child, and sang in his church choir. When aged 14 he co-founded the harmony group the Delfis, which recorded a demo but failed to secure a recording contract.  Hyland was eventually signed by Kapp Records as a solo artist.  (2013: not on survey, 2012:  not on survey)
