Back in the old days, the most popular songs were often about love and romance. The beautiful harmonies blended with classy lyrics for simply unforgettable songs that often became a couple’s signature song, something they’d always dance to and remember fondly. “Sincerely” by The McGuire Sisters was that song for many people in the 1950s and beyond.
Released in 1954 by The Moonglows, the song reached #1 on the R&B charts at the time, but didn’t achieve wider success until it was recorded by The McQuire Sisters later that same year. By 1955, the feminine version had reached #1 on the pop charts, cementing this song as a true classic for years to come.
We don’t often hear music this sweet music today, but for true fans this song has been a perennial favorite. Have a listen to this old favorite, complete with the sisters’ signature matching outfits, in the video from 1959 below.
