"Go Away, Little Girl"

OK, more 60's: This Goffin/King ballad remains the only song to make the U.S. Top 40 3 times by 3 different artists: Steve Lawrence (#1 in '62), The Happenings (#12 in '66) and 13 year-old Donny Osmond (#1 in '71 - Certified Platinum). It was also the first of only 9 songs to reach #1 by 2 different artists (the other ones being "I'll Be There", "Lady Marmalade", "Lean on Me", "The Loco-Motion","Please, Mr. Postman", "Venus", "When A Man Loves A Woman" and "You Keep me Hangin' On").

Yesterday's answer: "MMMBop" by Hanson. Saw them recently on "Dancing With The Stars" - they had to lower the key by 5 semitones as they're not little boys anymore.
