Kathy Young & The Innocents – A Thousand Stars

I don’t know how many people know this song but it took me twenty years to find it. I heard it in 1986 on an oldies station. I just caught the middle to the end and it intrigued me. Every time they would play it I would not catch who it was…it never dawned on me to call the station and ask. It was kind of haunting to me but I loved it. It took me till around 2008 to remember enough of it to track it down.

It was released in 1960 and peaked at #3 in the Billboard 100. This was their one and only top ten hit. It was written by Eugene Pearson.

A Thousand Years

A thousand stars in the sky like the stars in your eyes

They say to me that there’ll never be

No other love like you for me

A thousand stars in the sky make me realize

You are the one love that I’ll adore

Tell me you love me

Tell me you’re mine once more

Once more, once more

Each night I count the stars in the sky

Hoping that you aren’t telling me lies

You’re with me tonight, I’m captured by your charms

Oh, pretty baby, won’t you hold me in your arms?

A thousand stars in the sky make me realize

You are the one love that I’ll adore

Tell me you love me

Tell me you’re mine once more

Once more, once more

Each night I count the stars in the sky

Hoping that you aren’t telling me lies

You’re with me tonight, I’m captured by your charms

Oh, pretty baby, won’t you hold me in your arms?

A thousand stars in the sky make me realize

You are the one love that I’ll adore

Tell me you love me

Tell me you’re mine once more

I’m yours

  1. Quite good! She had a very good voice, quite a catchy song I don’t think I’ve ever heard before. Kinda surprising someone like Bananarama or even Joan Jett didn’t cover it in the 80s! Thanks for sharing it
