Ten Pin Bowling/You're Gonna Fall
Bryan Davies is an Australian singer from Sydney, born in 1945, who came to the attention of Australian rock fans in 1959. His clean-cut good looks and comparatively mellow rock style made him ideal for the TV pop shows of the era, such as Sing! Sing! Sing! and particularly Bandstand, on which Bryan became a regular. Bryan has had songs written for him by acclaimed songwriter, Jay Justin, who wrote songs for many other artists, including Little Pattie, Slim Whitman and Reg Lindsay.
Bryan's first television appearance was on teen music show, Teen Time on September 27, 1960 and he was then in his second last year of High School at Canterbury Boys' High School. He allegedly showed his appreciation of his backing band by bowing to them rather than to the audience after his performance. In spite of his singing career he successfully achieved his Leaving Certificate in 1961 when he was signed by the HMV label. Bryan released his first hit song, a cover version of Mark Wynter's "Dream Girl". Three more Top 40 contenders followed over the next twelve months. His version of "Dream Girl" outperformed the Wynter version on the Australian charts.
Some of Bryan's others hits were "Five Foot Two", "I Don't Want To Be Alone", "Love and Money" and "Ten Pin Bowling".
