Other hits include "Turn Around, Look at Me," "When I Fall in Love," "Goin' Out of My Head/Can't Take My Eyes Off You" and "Put Your Head on My Shoulder."
The Lettermen signature sound made romantic hit standards of love songs such as "Smile," "Put Your Head On My Shoulder," "Shangri-La,"
"Love," "Traces/Memories" and on and on. Among the 32 consecutive albums, which charted in the Top 100 in the United States, four were certified gold: "The Lettermen!!!...And Live!" (1967), "Goin' Out Of My Head" (1968), "Best of The Lettermen" (1969) and "Hurt So Bad" (1970).
The '60's and '70's saw The Lettermen score over 25 chart hit singles, including "Theme From 'A Summer Place" No. 16 in 1965, from the Sandra Dee/Troy Donahue film, "Goin' Out of My Head/Can't Take My Eyes Off You" No. 7, in 1968, the first hit record ever to completely integrate two songs as one and then "Hurt So Bad" No. 12 in 1969.
