"Sleep Walk" by Santo & Johnny.

OK, back to the 50's: These two Italian-American brothers from Brooklyn composed and played "Deep Sleep" in '58 as part of Mike Dee and The Mello Tones. One of them got a local music store to modify his Gibson acoustic to play like a steel guitar. They left that group and renamed the song, reaching #1 in '59. Brian Setzer's cover won him a Grammy in '98. Duo? Song?

Yesterday's answer: Bobby Vee's "Take Good Care Of My Baby".
