“Our Day Will Come” was one of those huge, radio-friendly hits of the early sixties, pre-dating the Beatles and “the British Invasion.”
It’s a finely crafted and terribly romantic song (what do you expect from a group called “The Romantics,” after all), with a haunting, sad beauty about it.
It holds up pretty good after all these years.
So here’s two versions for your Monday musical relief, the first performed by Ruby herself at an oldies show and the second performed in an updated cover by the great but tragic young Amy Winehouse (go here!)–I like Amy’s reggae-tinted version a lot.
