I didn't know about The Four Lads. It just happened that I was watching a PBS quiz show in which the host asks a question about a place where you 'can't go back to'. Most of the contestants have no clue. Finally one said 'Constantinople'? That is correct. Then the host played the song. It was amazing. A bit of googling and I found about this album. It was very refreshing to see four well dressed guys singing songs which actually have meaning.

I loved the song 'Istanbul' which is about the great city in Turkey whose name was changed from 'Constantinople'. It has some witty stanzas. One talks about someone should not try to go to Constantinople to meet his girlfriend because she is waiting in 'Istanbul'. This is where the phrase which has 'you can't go back to Constantinople' exists.

Standing in the corner is also a good song. It reminds me of good old innocent days.

Of all the songs on this album, this one is the most representative of the era. It's my mom's generation, but I recognize it well.

The tune and the lyrics merge perfectly. I heard this as music for a dance recital piece, and HAD to find it!

Saw the words "The Works" on a product in my house. Reminded me of this song so I bought it!
