Hugh’s 51 Weeks:51 Hits from the Past, Week 20

North to Alaska

Since I am currently in Alaska, I thought this song would be perfect. Originally sung by Johhny Horton for the movie of the same name, this version by Frankie Laine was recorded in 1962. I just love Frankie Laine.

If that link won’t play, try this version by Johnny Horton.

An extra song about Alaska by John Denver. I love visiting my sister and her family. They live near a small town called North Pole, which is about 15 miles from Fairbanks.

Got a message saying the Frankie Lane version is not available when pressing the play button, Marie. Looks like it’s not available to play in the UK. However, the John Dever video played and it’s certainly a lovely calming song. Have a wonderful time in North Pole, Alaska. You’re probably already enjoying very long days of daylight.
