Needles and Pins

Needles and Pins” was written by Jack Nitzsche and Sonny Bono (yes, *that* Sonny Bono).  The song was originally recorded by Jackie DeShannon in 1963. Although her version never cracked the US top 40, I recommend it over the Searchers better known version from 1964.

Other notable versions of the song were recorded by Del Shannon, Cher, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers with Stevie Nicks, Gary Lewis & the Playboys, and the Turtles. It was also a number 1 hit in France when recorded in French by Petula Clark entitled ‘La Nuit N’en finit Plus’.

The Ventures featured it in on their album “Fabulous Ventures” in 1964.
