1969 Song of the Day- “I’m Gonna Make You Mine”- Lou Christie. The single released in the summer of 1969 reached #10 on the Billboard Hot 100. “I’m Gonna Make You Mine” was written by Tony Romeo. Lou Christie was born Lugee Sacco in Glenwillard, Pennsylvania- a suburb of Pittsburgh. His first big hit was Two Faces Have I a 1963 hit- but his biggest hit was a 1965 #1 “Lightening Strikes.” “I”m Gonna Make You Mine” would be his final Top 40 hit. His music reminds me of The Four Seasons with that falsetto of his -which isn’t necessarily a good thing. I do like “Lightening Strikes” a lot. This one is- ok. Being from the Pittsburgh area over the years you hear his name a lot since he was one of the locals who made it big. Christie has spent the past five decades hitting the oldies circuit.
