Kathy Young and The Innocents A Thousand Stars

Pop Music

Kathy Young was only 15 years old when she had a hit in 1960/61 with a cover of the song “A Thousand Stars in the Sky.” She was backed by a Sun Valley, California group called The Innocents. It went to #3 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and #6 on the R&B Chart. It’s a good song for slow dancing! “A Thousand Stars” was originally done in 1954 by The Rivileers. Young had another hit in 1961 with “Happy Birthday Blues.” Other singles did not chart. She tried recording solo, but eventually, married, raised a family, managed a family citrus ranch, and returned to music. She has performed a numerous rock shows over the last few years and was inducted into the Doo Wop Hall of Fame in 2014.

Here are the lyrics to “A Thousand Stars” by Kathy Young and The Innocents:

“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-oo for me-e-e

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 mo-o-ore)

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 mo-o-ore)

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 mo-o-re (I-I-I’m yours)”

    I remember listening to this on the jukebox (5cents) after school (SMOS-7th grade) at Geno’s on South 39th Street in STLMO while sharing an order of ff (15cents) and a coke (25cents) with Helen R. Years later (the 90’s?) I met Kathy Young & the Innocents when they played the Fabulous Fox Theater on one of those PBS Doo-Wop tours. The doo-wop era, probably one of the best chapters of my life!
