"Take Good Care Of My Baby"

OK, back to the 60's: This '61 Carole King/Gerry Goffin composition was a #1 hit for Bobby Vee. It was part of the now infamous '62 Beatles Decca auditions (rejected in favor of The Tremeloes - they're STILL kicking themselves in the behind!). Bobby Vinton (aka The Polish Prince +/- Mr. Lonely) took it to #33 in '68. Also covered by Dion and Gary Lewis and The Playboys.

Yesterday's answer: "Whip It" by Devo. The first time I saw them was on Saturday Night Live doing "Whip It" and "Satisfaction". Gotta love those guys!
