"Venus In Blue Jeans" by Jimmy Clanton.

OK, back to the 60's: Nicknamed "The Swamp Pop R&B Teenage Idol", this Baton Rouge native had a major hit in '62 while serving in the Army. A Greenfield/Keller composition, it peaked at #7, sold over one million copies and was awarded a Gold Disc. Covered by Bobby Vee, Frankie Avalon and Mark Wynter. Artist? Song?

Yesterday's answer: "It's All In The Game". Dawes was a self-taught pianist and his great great grandfather rode with Paul Revere.
