  1. Sincerely

    "Sincerely" is a popular song written by Harvey Fuqua and Alan Freed and published in 1954. It was originally recorded by The Moonglows, who scored a #1 one single on the Billboard R&B Juke Box chart and #20 on the Billboard Top 100 charts. The best-selling version was a pop cover recorded by The McGuire Sisters, entering the charts in 1954 and reaching number one the next year. Many R&B collectors decry the cover version by the McGuire Sisters which kept the Moonglows off the Pop charts, but the Moonglows' version stole lyrics from a 1951 Dominoes tune, "That's What You're Doing To Me". The bridge in both songs is almost identical: "Lord, won't you tell me/ Why I love that woman so?/ She doesn't want me/ But I'll never let her go". In 1988 the country quartet Forester Sisters reached #8 on the Billboard Hot Country chart with their remake of the song.
