This is a song I like a lot. I only thought it was an original Herman’s Hermits song, but I found out different.
I’ve included the original, by Skeeter Davis, and also the extra one by Herman’s Hermits. I actually prefer theirs the best.
The lyrics are on the first video.
Here’s a little bit about the song from the Wiki article:
The End of the World” is a pop song written by composer Arthur Kent and lyricist Sylvia Dee, who often worked as a team. They wrote the song for American singer Skeeter Davis, and her recording of it was highly successful in the early 1960s, reaching the Top-5 on four different charts, including #2 on the main Billboard Hot 100. It spawned many cover versions.
“End of the World”, by Skeeter Davis, was released as a single in1962. It was written for her by Arthur Kent and Sylvia Dee, and is on the RCA Victor label.
