"Hippy Hippy Shake" by Chan Romero.

OK, more 50's: This singer/composer was the 1st Latino rocker to be inducted into the Rockabilly Hall Of Fame (2007). He penned his big hit in '59 after listening to Ritchie Valens' "Come On, Let's Go". The Swinging Blue Jeans took it to the Top 5 UK and #21 US. Featured on The Beatles' "Live At The BBC". Covered by The Georgia Satellites in '88. Part of the "Cocktail" and "Austin Powers" (yeah, Baby, yeah!) soundtracks. Artist? Song?

Yesterday's answer: Gustav Mahler, Symphony Number 8 in E-flat. http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DazLU9A7dgaw&h=008df
