"1-2-3" by Len Barry.

OK, more 60's: Philly native Leonard Borisoff started his career as lead singer for Bristol, PA based The Dovells. He co-wrote this '65 #1 hit with Madara and White, recording it in two takes. Sued by Motown's Berry Gordy for the song's similarity to The Supremes' "Ask Any Girl" (you decide!) - it was settled for 15% of royalties. Borisoff's stage name? Hit song? (you decide!) Yesterday's answer: Marty Robbins, "Devil Woman", Chucho Avellanet, "Magia Blanca". Love Marty's voice - like buttah!
