    I Won't Stand In Your Way

    Brian Setzer, Stray Cats, or whatever. I've seen it credited in different ways. I think he looks creepy but I like the song.

    Cut out all these exclamation points. An exclamation point is like laughing at your own joke.

    the volumes - "come back into my heart" b/w "the bell" (1962)


    "i love you" b/w "dreams" (1962)


    "i love you" (2:13) will always make me think of the strip poker scene in the wanderers (such a guilty pleasure for me)

    ^ nice

    i wanna explore more savoy groups. i came across this one recently

    clarence palmer & the jive bombers - brown boy (1952) + bad boy (1956)


    what was new to me was that earlier version "brown boy"...

    cherry (1957)


    stardust (1959)


    i also like these, but his vocal style can get kinda grating (none of the other ones i've heard really stuck on me)

    wikipedia:
    Origins
    "Oh Happy Day" was one of the first pop hits whose momentum was driven by the high-school teen set. Described as a "garage hit," before the song was recorded, Don Howard Kaplow sang it accompanied by his guitar before his classmates at Cleveland Heights High School, in Cleveland, Ohio. At a Saturday high-school dance, the boys and girls called 13 times for "Oh Happy Day". This convinced Koplow to put the song on wax. Once it was played on the air, teenage fans besieged the disc jockey, Phil McLean of radio station WERE with requests that kept him spinning the song all week. Calls began coming in from nearby cities, and it was decided the record should go to market. A contract was signed in early November 1952 and "Oh Happy Day" went on sale. Upon release by a brand new record company (Triple A), 21,000 copies quickly sold around Cleveland. Then the record was leased to another label (Essex) for national distribution. By February 1953, it was pushing the half-million mark.

    Time Magazine reported in 1953 that "Oh Happy Day" had a "folklike origin: Donnie heard it sung by an Ohio State girlfriend, who had picked it up on the campus. Donnie worked it out on his guitar, changed it a bit, wrote some lyrics, sang it at parties and prudently got it copyrighted.." Six weeks later, while "Oh Happy Day" was still on the pop charts, the Washington Post reported that Nancy Binns Reed, a 28-year-old housewife, had filed a lawsuit to prove that she wrote the song. Represented by Lee Eastman (father of Linda McCartney), a New York copyright and show business attorney, Mrs. Reed obtained affidavits from persons who had heard her singing the song when serving as a counselor at various camps and when she attended the University of California in the 1940s. She stated that many campers and high school and college friends had learned the song. The lawsuit resulted in an out-of-court cash settlement along with an agreement that Mrs. Reed and Mr. Kaplow share equal credit for the song's words and music. Music Views magazine reported in its June 1953 edition that Kaplow's girlfriend had graduated from a girl's camp, where Ms. Reed had served as a counselor.

    Chart Performance

    "Oh Happy Day" (not to be confused with the gospel hit of the same name) was known as the "people's hit" since it became a national United States hit song as well as an international hit without any initial support from the music industry.
    ...
