Freddy Cannon

After posting the below video I watched Freddie singing Palisade Park. This song was a favorite of mine, but my girlfriend hated it. This was because everytime we were riding around in my '57 Chev I would turn the volume up very very loud when it came on. At any rate this song sure brought back good memories for an 'ol geezer like me......... Jack

Palisades Amusement Park was an amusement park located in Bergen County, New Jersey, across the Hudson River from New York City. It was situated atop the New Jersey Palisades lying partly in Cliffside Park and partly in Fort Lee. The park operated from 1898 until 1971, remaining one of the most visited amusement parks in the country near the end of its existence. Essentially, it became a victim of its own success and inadequate facilities to deal with the generations of families and children who flocked to its gates. After the park closed, a high-rise luxury apartment complex was built on its site.
