Linda Scott I’ve Told Every Little Star

Linda Scott I've Told Every Little Star

Pop Music

Linda Scott was still in high school signed on with Canadian-American Records in 1961. The label  recently had a hit with Santo & Johnny’s “Sleep Walk” that Canadian-American produced. They  released Scott’s version of  “I’ve Told Every Little Star,” a song originally written by Oscar Hammerstein II and Jerome Kern for the 1932 production “Music In The Air.” Her single peaked at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1961 and went on to sell more than one million copies, which earned Scott an RIAA gold record.

Linda Scott was born Linda Joy Sampson in Queens, New York. Besides “I’ve Told Every Little Star,”she had hits with “I Don’t Know Why” and “Don’t Bet Money Honey,” among a few other charting songs. She became an Army medical laboratory technician, stationed in Fort Sam Houston, Texas, and married a fellow serviceman. They had a child and later divorced. She also received a degree in theology from Kingsway Christian College and Theological Seminary in Des Moines, Iowa. She went on to teach music at the Christian Academy in New York City.

Here are the lyrics to “I’ve Told Every Little Star” by Linda Scott:

“Why haven’t I told you?

Oh baby.

I’ve told every little star
Just how sweet I think you are
Why haven’t I told you?

I’ve told ripples in a brook
Made my heart an open book
Why haven’t I told you?

Friends ask me am I in love
I always answer yes
Might as well confess
If the answer’s yes

Maybe you may love me too
Oh my darling if you do
Why haven’t you told me?”

The Daily Doo Wop Rec Room has daily featured doo wop, rock and roll, R&B, or rockabilly songs that were hits during the first era of rock and roll (that is, from about 1952 until the British invasion in 1964). After a song is featured, it then goes into the juke box. You are welcome to listen to any of the 40+ selections there. Every weekend, there is a Golden Oldies Juke Box Saturday Night, and the juke box is full of song requests from the 1950s and 1960s.
