colonel snow wrote:Someday (you'll want me to want you)

see letter above

The original version was recorded on 22 november 1944 by Elton Britt (RCA 20-1864).
Through the years a whole army of (C & W) artists recorded the song.

There are may clips on Youtube.


Clyde McPhatter & The Drifters recorded a superlative version for Atlantic in March 1954, released October that year as their fifth single.

This outstanding recording featured, as always, Clyde's incomparable vocals, but also bassman Bill Pinkney's lead (spoken) spotlight during the bridge - both men had already shared lead vocal honors for the group's classic recording of "White Christmas".

Here's "Someday You'll Want Me To Want You" by Clyde McPhatter & The Drifters (never mind the photo used in the upload, that of a later Drifters line-up, but it was about the only one I found with the correct running time - see photo below for the line-up heard on the record) :

Jerry Lee Lewis has also recorded "Someday (You'll Want Me To Want You)" at least twice, so it has to be a favourite of his.

First, he did it at Sun in 1958 (not released until the 70s), and later in 1971 for Mercury (not released until the 80s).

Great thread, very informative, Colonel Snow.

Maybe not the best version but I have a soft spot for Rick Nelson's version of "Someday". This was the very first version of this song that I heard. And I did not know then about James Burton and Rick Nelson's connection.
