"What's Your Name?" by Don and Juan.

OK, more 60's one-hit wonders: Roland Trone and Claude (C.J.) Johnson made up this Brooklyn-based R&B doo-wop duo whose only hit only hit came in 1962 with a Johnson composition. It is considered a doo-wop classic and was recently inducted into the Doo-Wop Hall Of Fame. Peaked at #7 in '62. Part of the "Flipped" soundtrack (2010). Song? Duo's name?

Yesterday's answer: "I'll Be True To You" by The Monkees. Davy Jones at his best. Not one of their biggest hits but I always loved that tune. A band from San Juan, The Wellingtons, used to do a great cover (quien se acuerda?).
And, of course, for a double-dose of Davy Jones there's always "I Wanna Be Free" from the same album.
