Thanks for posting this Emma. It's new to me too, but I can't help but question a few things said on this video.
First Wishin' and Hopin' Dusty's first top 10 hit? What about I Only Want To Be With You and Stay Awhile? I'm pretty sure they both bit the top 10, well maybe not Stay Awhile. I know that there were many local charts out around the world.
I am sure I'm opening up a can of worms here, but what the heck! Sorry Dusty, I have to disagree with you about Wishin' and Hopin' being sexist. True the lyrics are wear your hair just for him, do the things he likes to do... but a guy could be singing this to another guy or a woman singing it to another woman, or a male and female couple. Is the song sexist than? What is wrong wanting to look your best for a person you like? Maybe I'm thinking like an old fart? LOL! But I always felt that way about this song. It's such a happy sounding song and I always loved it. Plus Dusty you did say you stole it from Dionne Warwick, you go girl!!!!
