"The Worst That Could Happen" by Johnny Maestro and The Brooklyn Bridge.

OK, more 60's: This Jimmy Webb classic was 1st recorded in '67 by The Fifth Dimension for their "The Magic Garden" album. The former lead singer for The Crests fronted an 11-piece group made up of members of the Del-Satins and The Rhythm Heritage and took it to #3 in '69. Along with "MacArthur Park" and "By The Time I Get To Phoenix", it is about Webb's involvement with a 'Susan'. Webb also recorded it for his "Ten Easy Pieces" compilation. Song? Group?

Yesterday's answer: "At The Hop" by Danny and The Juniors. Pretty well forgotten until "resurrected" by Sha Na Na at Woodstock - they went on just before Hendrix!
