"At The Hop" by Danny and The Juniors.

OK, more 50's: This Singer/Medora/White '57 composition was 1st recorded by Philly-based doo-wop group the Juvenairs as "Do the Bop". Dick Clark suggested a title change and the band also changed its name before appearing on his show. #1 Pop and R&B. Highlights the popular dances of the day. Covered by Sha Na Na in Woodstock and by Flash Cadillac & The Continental Kids in "American Graffiti". Group? Song?

Yesterday's answer: "Eye In The Sky" by the Alan Parsons Project. Always loved that song - came out around the time Lauren was born. Alan Parsons collaborated in engineering The Beatles' "Abbey Road". Hard to think of the Alan Parsons Project without thinking of Austin Powers! Dr. Evil: The key to this project is the giant laser, which was invented by the noted Cambridge physicist, Dr. Parsons. So therefore, it is fitting to call it: "The Alan Parsons Project".[Scott snickers]Dr. Evil: What?Scott: The Alan Parson...s Project was a progressive rock band from 1982. Why don't you just name it Operation Wang Chung, ass?
