Gary U.S. BondsLyrics This Little Girl

Bonds was born in Jacksonville, Florida, but relocated to Norfolk, Virginia, where he would begin his music career by playing in a band called the Turks and singing in church. He was given the name Gary U.S. Bonds by producer Frank Guida, who hoped that the name would be confused with a public service announcement advertising the sale of government bonds and thus get the singer more air time. Bonds scored his first hit with the track “New Orleans.”

Gary U.S. Bonds would follow it up with “Not Me,” which did not do well commercially; the song later turned in to a hit for the Orlons, however. Gary U.S. Bonds is best known, however, for his Number One hit “Quarter to Three” from the early 1960s. That song would later make it on to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s 500 Songs That Shaped Rock and Roll list.

Bonds’s career experienced a second wind in the 1980s, when he began collaborating with Steven Van Zandt, Bruce Springsteen, and the E Street Band. His hits from that decade include “Out of Work,” “This Little Girl,” and “Jolé Blon.” Bonds continues to release albums and tour to this day. In the year 2006, Gary U.S. Bonds was inducted in to the Long Island Music Hall of Fame.

Bonds is also known as an accomplished golfer. He frequently plays celebrity PGA events.
