"The Bunny Hop"

OK, back to the 50's: This 1952 dance craze originated at Balboa High School in San Francisco. A novelty dance classic, it features a conga-style line loosely based upon the 19th century Finnish "Jenka" and/or the German "Schottische" or "Rhinelander". First recorded by Ray Anthony and His Orchestra with vocals by JoAnn Greer and The Skyliners. Song? For extra credit name the flip-side.

Yesterday's answer: "What's Your Name" by Don and Juan. Love the harmonies. On my Bucket List: Attend the annual Brooklyn Doo-Wop Reunion.
