This timely topic is one of my wife's favorite pop songs from the early 60s. Anybody remember it?

TORTURE
Kris Jensen

Torture, torture
Baby, you're torturing me
Why do you lead me around
And make me chase ya
When I catch ya,
You won't let me embrace ya
Please baby, have a heart
Cause can't you see
You're torturing me
Torturing me

This torture that I'm going through
Is worth the pain if I have you
So, if you love me, let me know
But if you don't , please let me go
Torture, torture
Baby, you're torturing me

You know that I'm crazy about you
Yet you make me do without you
Do you mean to hurt, or don't you see
You're torturing me, torturing me

An ancillary question. Who recorded an isntrumental titled Torture that was the flip side of a rocked up version of a folk song...

Jerry

(Never heard the song you're referring to..)

Jerry, Link Wray? (Recently deceased).
I remember attempting to play this when I was first learning to play guitar. Got a lot of rude comments.

Good shot, RR. It was by the Fendermen and was the flip side of Muleskinner Blues.. still sounds good to me.

My wife, as a little girl, loved this song so much that her outspoken father finally smashed the 45 over his knee to make it stop. We similarly roused Noriega out of his sanctuary by blasting bad pop music at him. "Torture," indeed.

My own recollection of this song is that the title spoke volumes about the song, itself. The vocalist truly sounded tortured, IMHO. I found it unbearable and was glad to see it slide swiftly from the survey in which it never got past #20. The song was also released on one of the Everly Brothers albums, little improved by their rendition.

Ketty Lester did one called "Sweet Torture".

Allan C has the right song. Torture debuted 10/06/62 and charted for 6 weeks (Joel Whitburn).

I actually liked the song, but then again I also liked Patches, Teen Angel, Tell Laura I Love Her, Tradegy, etc.
