Lollipops and Roses

This is my instrumental cover of “Lollipops and Roses”. Composed by Anthony Velona, it was a grammy-award winning hit for crooner Jack Jones in 1962. Originally a ballad, it was covered both instrumentally and vocally by many artists — mainly in the 1960s ,including Steve Lawrence, Perry Como, Vince Guaraldi and Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass. I happen to prefer the instrumental covers, as in my opinion the music here is quite a bit better than the lyrics.
