Town Without Pity

“Town Without Pity” is the title song from the 1961 film of the same name. Written by composer Dimitri Tiomkin and lyricist Ned Washington, the track was originally recorded by Gene Pitney. In 1962, the song received a Golden Globe award for “Best Motion Picture Song,” and was nominated for an Academy Award for “Best Music, Original Song”. It was also Pitney’s first Top 40 hit.

My instrumental arrangement is in the style of a 1960’s guitar group like the Shadows or Ventures.
