OK, more 50's one-hit wonders: The only hit for this Newark, NJ doo-wop sextet came in '57 with a catchy tune penned by three of its members and inspired by a Pepsodent commercial. It peaked at #5 Pop and at #3 R&B. Referenced in Don McLean's "American Pie" and Led Zeppelin's "Rock and Roll". Part of the "American Graffiti" soundtrack and performed by Sha Na Na at Woodstock. Group? Song?
Yesterday's answer: The Chad Mitchell Trio. Song: "Mighty Day", mockumentary: "A Mighty Wind". A young Jim McGuinn, fresh out of Chicago's Old Town School of Folk Music, joined the Limeliters. He left them to tour with Chad Mitchell and shortly thereafter joined Bobby Darin. "A Mighty Wind" is a must-watch for any folkie!
