"Party Lights" by Claudine Clark.

OK, more 60's one-hit wonders (ready to do the Mashed Potatoes?): Known later in her career as Joy Dawn, this Macon, GA native cut her teeth in Philly and then in NYC, where she was promoted and produced by Peter DeAngelis and Bob Marcucci. Her only hit came in '62 with a self-penned Pop/R&B dance number that peaked at #5. Uncanny resemblance to Cyndi Lauper's '83 "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun". Artist? Song?

Yesterday's answer: "Go Away, Little Girl". The Goffin/King catalog is mind-boggling! I had forgotten that they had written that song until I heard it on Carole King night on "Idol".
