The Mountains High
Dick & Dee Dee
1961


Yeah, yeah, yeah, yea-hea, yea-hea, yea-hea yea-hea
The mountain's high and the valley's so deep
Can't get across to the other
si-hi-hi-hi-hi-hi-hi-hi-hide
Don't ya give up baby, dont you cry
Don't ya give up till I reach the other
si-hi-hi-hi-hi-hi-hide

I was lonely baby, I couldnt sleep
The night they took you from my
si-hi-hi-hi-hi-hide

I was a lonely soul
Until you became my goal
And then I saw the spark of love
And then the stars fell from
(up above OH YEAH!)

I know someday we will meet again
But I don't know exactly where or
whe-he-he-he-he-he-he-hen
But baby, if fate has its way
We'll meet again some other day-aaaaaaaaaayyyy

The mountain's high and the valley's so deep
Can't get across to the other
si-hi-hi-hi-hi-hi-hi-hide
Don't ya give up baby, dont you cry
Don't ya give up till I reach the other
si-hi-hi-hi-hi-hi-hi-hide

Hoo hoo hoo hoo (I know it to I tell ya)
Hoo hoo hoo hoo (I know it to I tell ya)
I know, I know hoo hoo hoo hoo
FADES-
I know, I know hoo hoo hoo hoo
The valley's deep baby.......

Sixties Music by Artist
Dick and Dee Dee, first met in junior high school in the Los Angeles area in the late fifties.

Richard Gosting, as Dick was known, loaned Dee Dee (Mary Sperling) 45-rpm records from his rock and roll collection. When Mary took them home and practiced singing for hours in front of the mirror, she never imagined she would someday sing in front of television cameras. Dick and Dee Dee's mutual love of music eventually joined them together for a nine year recording career.

The duo lost track of each other until Mary's first year at college, when Dick and Mary began working together at the same See's Candies Store. On their lunch breaks, they discovered a mutual love of song writing and ended up collaborating on a song called, "I Want Someone."

Throughout the Sixties, Dick and Dee Dee recorded a total of eight chart singles, five of which made the top 30 nationally...
In the summer of 1961, their new record producers, The Wilder Brothers and Don Ralke, area tested the Dick and Dee Dee record in San Francisco. When "I Want Someone" was accidentally turned over, and the other side, "The Mountain's High" played instead, it became an immediate hit.

In 1969 the duo dissolved the act. Dick wrote songs and performed with his wife Sandy, until he passed away in 2003. Dee Dee subsequently moved to Big Sur to write and record an album with her husband, Kane. In the Eighties they moved back to the Los Angeles area. Dee Dee worked in the fashion industry, fund raising and ran her own property management company.
