Oh Wow! How I remember this song playing all hours of the night during my folks Saturday night parties. This and the Green Door by Jim Lowe, or his flip side called Little man in chinatown and Rock around the clock and My Special Angel by Bobby Helms were top of the charts. Lavern does a great job on this song. Thanks for sharing Chuck
