Remember the song “Teen angel” from 1960?

 It was sung by Mark Dinning and written by his sister Eugenia, and her husband Red Surrey. Dinning didn’t have much success in his sing career until "Teen Angel" became a hit. The lyrics, which told of the death of a teenage girl, were deemed to morbid by British radio stations who refused to air it. Still, it sold over one million copies, and was awarded a gold disc. Dinning was an alcoholic and as a result his career sank because he failed to show for concerts or showed up drunk, costing promoters money.  Dinning continued performing until his death from a heart attack in Jefferson City, Missouri, aged 52.
