Santo & Johnny – Sleepwalk

I’ve never been a big instrumental guy. I do like a few like “Walk Don’t Run” but this one is probably my favorite. It sets a mood like no other. It was written and performed by Santo and Johnny Farina in 1959. It peaked at #1 in the Billboard 100 and #22 in the UK Charts.

This song has been used in numerous movies and television series.

La Bamba is probably the movie that people remember it the most.

    1. It sticks with you after listening to it. I never knew the name until I saw the La Bamba soundtrack many years ago.
