Released: March 1954

The comically named Spaniels formed at school in 1952 and clocked their biggest with this evergreen doo-wop number two years later. It was co-written by nominal lead singer Pookie Hudson and Calvin Carter and its "doh-doh-doh" vocal rhythms often rear up on other records, including Pete Wingfield's 1975 pastiche 'Eighteen With A Bullet' featured on the Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels soundtrack.
