"Pipeline" by The Chantays.

OK, more 60's one-hit wonders: The only hit for this Santa Ana, CA surf band came in '63 with a Carman/Spickard composition originally titled "Liberty's Whip". They changed the song's name after watching "The Endless Summer". A surf rock classic, it peaked at #4. Its distinct sound is achieved by "upside down" mixing - the rhythm guitar and bass are up front whereas the lead guitar, electric keyboard and drums are in the background. Band? Song?

Yesterday's answer: "The Immigrant". Part of Neil's "return" in the 70's. A little pitch for him - one of my all-time faves. He's STILL not in the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame. Here's the link to sign the petition.
