The Platters:

The Platters were formed in 1952.  They were arguably the most successful of the 50s vocal doo wop genre that exploded in the decade and continued through the early 1960’s.  The group has gone through a plethora of members, however, the “classic” or most successful line-up consisted of Tony Williams, David Lynch, Paul Robi, founder Herb Reed, and Zola Taylor.  As lead tenor, Williams possessed the voice of an angel.  The Platters charted with several hits, including, Only You (And You Alone), The Great Pretender, You’ve Got the Magic Touch, My Prayer, Twilight Time, Smoke Gets in Your Eyes, and Harbor Lights

The Platters-Twilight Time

The Platters routinely get the nod when I feel like slow dancing cheek to cheek with my girl, as well.
