"Don't Worry, Baby"

OK, more 60's: This B. Wilson/R. Christian ballad was the B-side to The Beach Boys' 1st #1 single, "I Get Around". Peaked at #24. Inspired by a Ronettes hit, Brian's favorite tune. Influenced Lennon's 1980 "(Just Like) Starting Over". A teenage drag racer accepts a challenge and his girlfriend pleads to take her love with him (sob!). On the "Deja Vu" and "Never Been Kissed" soundtracks.

Yesterday's answer: "Joanne" by Michael (Mike) Nesmith - obviously, post-Monkees one-hit wonder.
