"Johnny Angel" by Shelley Fabares.

OK, more 60's one-hit wonders: The only Top 10 hit for this actress/singer came in '62 with a Duddy/Pockriss composition that topped the charts and won her a Gold Disc. The introduced it on her TV program "The Donna Reed Show". Her debut single, it had previously been recorded by Georgia Lee and by Sandy Stewart. A girl has a huge crush on a boy who doesn't know she exists and turns down other boys' offers hoping he'll ask her out. Darlene Love and The Blossoms on background vocals, Glen Campbell on Guitar and Hal Blaine on drums! Covered by The Carpenters in '73 and part of the "Mermaids" soundtrack. Artist? Song?

Yesterday's answer: "Apple, Peaches, Pumpkin Pie" by Jay and The Techniques. Their only other hit was "Keep The Ball Rolling". Spanish version: "No Te Enamores".
