"A Thousand Stars" by Kathy Young and The Innocents.
OK, more 60's one-hit wonders: This Santa Ana, CA native was not quite 15 in '60 when she met all-male trio The Innocents during a taping of "The Wink Martindale Show". Producer Jim Lee of Indigo Records promptly signed her up to cover a '54 minor hit by The Rivileers. It peaked at #3 on Billboard and at #6 R&B. Artist? Song? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UwX4bjFrP_0 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4aeqRWMjLKQ Yesterday's answer: "Greenfields" by The Brothers Four. Four frat. brothers. This was my good friend and Phi Chi brother Tom Sharkey's favorite tune - many long nights spent studying anatomy and listening to "Greenfields".
