Metaphorical "heartworm".  TOOOOOO funny. ^

Good find (I'll let you get to your date).  

Good ole "Darlin'".

Nice!  This one is super easy for me, too.

I'll vote this order:

GOLD:  Beach Boys for Darlin.  Awesome song and lead vocal by Carl.  One of the best songs from the earlier days.

SILVER:  Doobies for Little Darling.  LOVE this song and it only loses the gold vote by a hair. I've loved this one since the first time I heard it back in the late 70's.  

BRONZE:  The Diamonds.  Not much for the 50's music, but this one is a good one from that era.

TIN/PEWTER:  Al Trace.  Nah. 

My final answer.

It seems a bit early for the mid-week lull, so here are some 21st century darlings:

Real Estate, "Darling"


Girls, "Darling"


She & Him, "Sweet Darlin'"


Beach House, "D.A.R.L.I.N.G."


Sleater-Kinney, "Hey Darling"

Welcome to the Chair, The Egg.

Gold - Darlin’ (stereo mix /re-mastered) (The Beach Boys - 1967/2017)
Nice, bright sound. Never a highlight on my BB playlist but a strong song. Carl nailed it, especially live. Darian did a great job at the concert in 2012. John Cowsill does a decent version too. I dig the way the chords vary in the last verse. Kudos, Brian.

Silver - Little Darlin’ (The Diamonds - 1957)
Terrific sounding recording. I thought this might get my Gold, but it does get tedious after repeated listening. Larry questioned how serious they were. This might provide the answer…



Bronze - You Call Everybody Darlin’ (Al Trace And His New Orchestra; Vocal by Bob Vincent - 1948)
ROCK AND ROLL! Tommy Dorsey had Frank Sinatra, Glenn Miller had Ray Eberle. Al Trace had this guy. And it says it went to #1. Doing a search on the song, it was recorded by a stack of people including Al Trace (twice), Anne Vincent (not sure if she was a relation to our Bob, but she sounds like Wayne Newton), Bing Crosby, The Andrews Sisters, Gordon MacRae, Faron Young, Jerry Lee Lewis and Fabian. I enjoyed both this version and the Anne Vincent one...


Participant - Little Darling (I Need You) (The Doobie Brothers - 1977)
Now and then a host introduces a gem of a song that you’ve never heard of but it catches your fancy and you just can’t get enough of it. Unfortunately, this isn’t such an occasion. For me, a great example of why themes don’t necessarily provide the tightest battle. Surely this was an after-thought, included just because of the title. Looking it up, I was stunned to see it was written by Holland-Dozier-Holland and a single for Marvin Gaye. Unsurprisingly, even his version wasn’t a big hit. This is definitely Pete Simpson music. Come back, Pete! Still, thank you for not using Supertramp! I would’ve gone with the Frankie Miller hit from ’79. It’s a pity we can’t really use Beatles here anymore. Surely their Abbey Road classic would’ve challenged. (Lee, obviously that Beatles clip works in Canada. Alas, I’m tipping it works nowhere else.)

Okay Egg/Orb - an easy vote this week.  And here they are >

Golden by a wide margin  (that song) Darlin' - the updated - and oh so beautiful still.
Silver - the 50's anthem - that is an earworm.  You can't get this out - once it's in.  The Diamonds get this.
Bronze - to the cool little groove from Al Trace and the orchestra.  Reached 13th - wow.
The Tin has to be to the Doobies for even trying to attempt to touch or outdo Marvin Gaye.  Michael McDonald does have soul in his voice but you can't outdo perfection.  Marvin was usually that. 
Some great takes he took though >


Meantime - sing it Darian:

The ending alone does it!
It WAS on Tamla Motown 66:
