"Baby, Let's Wait"

OK, more YOUNG Rascals: This Sawyer/Burton romantic ballad was first featured in their '66 self-titled debut album. Spectacular vocals by Eddie Brigati, opening drum roll by Dino Danelli and heavenly Felix Cavaliere Hammond organ swells. The Royal Guardsmen released it as the B-side to "Snoopy vs. the Red Baron" - their later re-release reached the Top 40. Also covered by The Spiders, Alice Cooper's H. S. band!

Yesterday's answer: "Five O'Clock World" by The Vogues. Great tune - BOTH versions are dynamite!

Answer for 8/10 10 post (oops!): Farewell Symphony. (Number 45 in F-sharp minor) by Haydn. Apparently the message worked, as Prince Esterhazy packed up the court to return to Eisenstadt the next day. Papa Haydn definitely had a sense of humor. (...and so does Barenboim!).
