"Keep On Dancing" by The Gentrys.

OK, more 60's one-hit wonders: This Allen Jones/Willie David Young composition was first recorded in '63 by the Avantis but failed to chart. A Memphis-based septet of high school friends took its cover to #4 in '65. Memorable drum roll at the beginning and after the "fade". A very short recording, it repeats itself to fill a 2:08 min. time slot. A #9 hit for The Bay City Rollers in '71. Group? Song?

Yesterday's answer: "Beyond The Sea". When you think Bobby Darin you DON'T think Kevin Spacey but he's such a doggone good actor that he pulls it off in "Beyond The Sea".
