Johnny has over 31 charted hits in the USA on the Pop and
Country Charts alone including 14 Top 40 hits on Billboards
Hot 100, and many were Top 10's on the Pop, Country and
Adult Contemporary charts, his last song charting in 1984
and he had an additional release in 1990, Atlantic Records
"Bim Bam Boom". Many of his records achieved Gold status.
The most recorded song he has written "It Keeps Right
On A Hurtin" has been recorded by over 110 artists including
Elvis Presley, Dean Martin, Bobby Darin, Conway Twitty,
Eddy Arnold, Billy Joe Royal (who had a hit on the country
charts in the 1980's with it,)Boots Randolph and many,
many more. He had #1 Hits in England, Australia, New
Zealand, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and other countries,
this was in addition to his US hits. He's recorded in
5 languages English - Spanish - Japanese -Italian and
German. In Japan he had several #1's in both English and
Japanese. He recorded the popular TV theme Gidget for
the TV show of the same name starring Sally Field along
with many other songs. He has appeared on many more TV
shows than are listed here at TV.com, along with motion
picture appearances and he has appeared in a vast array of print media. I believe this success and world wide popularity only proves his artistic ability and great singing style. Besides "Poetry In Motion" some of my
favorites are "It Keeps Right On A Hurtin", "Without You"
"Talk Back Trembling Lips", "Funny How Time Slips Away"
"Earth Angel" "Empty Feeling" and the list goes on.
