This week the theme is songs that mention any fruit.
I’ve made myself an agreement.
Only post songs on Song Lyric Sunday that I’d choose for my own playlist.
Sometimes I can’t recall any that fit the weekly theme, so I just don’t participate. Other times, I have BIG choices to make because I have more than one to showcase.
My choice was tough this week. It’s Sweet Cherry Wine by Tommy James and the Shondells. That group ranks in my top ten- possibly, top five favorites. The video contains the lyrics, so I chose not to post the lyrics. The current tension and atrocities in our world make this one a good choice IMHO. (Crystal Blue Persuasion is my favorite of their many excellent songs.) Cheers everyone!
Tommy James and the Shondells is an American pop and Rock n Roll group that was most active in the 60s. They had two number one singles in the U.S. — “Hanky Panky” (1966) and “Crimson and Clover” (1968) — but also released five other top ten hits, including “I Think We’re Alone Now“, “Mony Mony,” and “Crystal Blue Persuasion“. Their iconic hits are often played by ‘oldies‘ and ‘classic rock‘ stations. The band (from Niles, Michigan, USA) initially formed in 1959 as “Tom and the Tornadoes”, with the then only 12-year-old singer-songwriter Tommy James as the front man.

Tommy James and the Shondells made some great songs, thanks for sharing this one today Susan. Tommy James said that the “sweet cherry wine” is a metaphor for the blood of Jesus.
I assumed that from what I know about his Christian beliefs. Thanks for validating it. 🙂
He was a Catholic.
You know what? I’m surprised but deep down a Christian is a Christian. It’s like the notion that we’re all Americans being more important than how we practice being Americans. 😉
