The Ink Spots

The Ink Spots played a large role in pioneering the black vocal group-harmony genre, helping to pave the way for the doo wop explosion of the '50s. The quavering high tenor of Bill Kenny presaged hundreds of street-corner leads to come, and the sweet harmonies of Charlie Fuqua, Deek Watson, and bass Hoppy Jones (who died in 1944) backed him flawlessly.

Kenny's impeccable diction and Jones's deep drawl were both prominent on the Ink Spots' first smash on Decca in 1939, the sentimental "If I Didn't Care." From then through 1951, the group was seldom absent from the pop charts, topping the lists with "We Three (My Echo, My Shadow, and Me)" (1940), "I'm Making Believe" and "Into Each Life Some Rain Must Fall" (both in 1944), and "The Gypsy" and "To Each His Own" (both in 1946).

Watson eventually split to form his own group, the Brown Dots, and appeared in numerous low-budget film musicals, while Kenny attempted a solo career, notching a solo hit in 1951 with the uplifting "It Is No Secret." Countless groups masquerading as the Ink Spots have thrived across the nation since the '50s. ~ Bill Dahl, Rovi

FALLOUT THANK YOU
Welcome to New Vegas
poppa_bear49
I grewup listening to this music. This is the music of my childhood from grandmother, mother, aunts and uncles singing along, laughing and dancing...th o s e were good times, great music.
Greetings from Vault 101!
I loved these guys but it's kind of annoying when people say fallout or fallout brought me here, just shut up and listened to the damn music!
When I first played Fallout 3 And NV, I went on youtube and listened to to all the songs on a playlist. That's how much I love both go their soundtracks.
I think fallout is the reason most of us even know about this genre of music.

Just like a few people before--Love this music thanks to Fallout!
When we were kids we wore out our dad's Ink Spots 78s.
I'm thirteen and I absolutely love the ink spots. Thank you Fallout 3 for introducing this blissful music to my life. :)
Fallout made me love this genre of music.

Fallout is how I got introduced not just to The Ink Spots, but a whole genre of music from this time period!
The ink spots start it all and still carry on to the fallout era
Fallout 3
(: It takes a brilliant And a Teenager with a very good taste of music to listen to this. Genre
The Ink Spots STARTED IT ALL they sang Doo Wop before there was Doo Wop!!!!!!!
Let's see if the man I hate to know end came from Italy in 1939 and was born in 1928 that would make him under 10 in the 30's under 20 in the 40's so it would have been in his 30's the 50's that is when he came out to the West Coast. When the 60's rolled around he was in his 40's. The 70's his 50's the 80's his 60's and from 1990 to 2010 his 70's and 80's. Moving right thru to today we have 2010 - 2020, he is now in his 80's.
The Ink Spots started the slow Doo Wop era.
The music is similar because that way it doesnt take away from the lyrics, but instead supports them haha. But maybe im crazy, I am responding to a year old comment.
If I didn't care absolutely fantastic
i thank besthda to opening my mind into such amazing music

The Ink Spots are the absolute best thing to ever happen to music
I just love this type of music my kids tease me about it but I know they enjoy it but wont admit to it
f**k you all, I just generally like this music, I wasn't born into this era or anything like that is just good music.

I first heard the Inkspots music when I was a child, during the 2nd World War. My family played the albums so much that after all these years I still remember the tunes and lyrics. What a trip to the past! I still love the stuff they and others of that era played.
pudgenmiss
Love The Ink Spots, have them on 78's records. The Gypsy my favorite song!
Great music
I dont want to set the world on fire
Very little of my friends know I like this music so when they hear it they look at me funny lol
bfotsch456
Great music
I wish that America would go back into a 50's like era. Where teenagers like myself liked music like this. Not some stupid rapping s**t.
sdes39
They came on the scene the year I was born, 1939. No wonder I love them so much.
noah.riley8
Some great music, although their use of the same musical formula with each and every song makes the specific songs less valuable, or at least that's how I feel. All the same, really great music; my favorite's It's All Over but the Crying.
kderrah
Have loved the Ink Spots for years...; that's some sweet, sweet music...

I heard them in Fallout 3 as well but I was first exposed to them in Bioshock along with several other wonderful artists from the 40s and 50s.
Fallout 3 had the best soundtrack. No person can argue this.
