Music video

The video shot to accompany the selection shows the brothers rescuing a classic car (specifically, a 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air convertible) from a junk yard, restoring it (in a series of shots that compress an unknown number of weeks, or months, into 35 seconds of video time) to drivable condition, then taking it out for a spin.


"On The Wings Of A Nightingale" is the most popular of the duo's songs recorded since 1970 and the final Everly Brothers single to chart on the Billboard Hot 100.

Cover versions

The Spongetones recorded a version for their 2000 Odd Fellows album.[4] Apple Jam also recorded three versions for their 2012 On the Wings of a Nightingale EP.

McCartney's own version still existed strictly as a demonstration recording, which he had still not released publicly, as of the middle of December 2016. Nor was he known, by then, to have performed it in concert or recorded any full-fledged studio versions of it.
