The most played song on my stereo this weekend has been this gem by Frankie Lymon & The Teenagers.
The track bursts at the seams with the exuberance of youth and is a doo-wop-meets-rock-&-roll barnstormer. I can’t help but raise a smile when Lymon belts out the title one minute and twelve seconds in. The perfect antidote to the pre-working week blues.
Lymon’s story is a textbook tale of rock & roll destruction – starting before the birth rock & roll itself – but that’s for another time. Until then, enjoy:
