Last Kiss is undoubtedly one of the most touching sad songs about death of a loved one!

This song was based on a true story, which happened before Christmas in 1962 where Jeanette Clark, a 16 year old and her two other friends were killed when their car hit a tractor-trailer on a road in rural Barnesville, Georgia.

The accident was terribly gory and provoked an intense reaction in Barnesville. Wayne Cochran, a white R&B singer and composer was living in an old shack about 15 miles away saw accident after accident on the busy stretch of highway where he lived. He had written a song about all the accidents and left it unfinished, until he heard about the tragedy in Barnesville. He completed the song and dedicated it to the memory of Jeanette Clark...
