"A Teenager In Love" by Dion and The Belmonts.

OK, back to the 60's: Dion DiMucci was just 19 when he and The Belmonts recorded this '59 #5 doo-wop hit (#28 in the UK). Penned by prolific Brill Building songwriters Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman. The woes of a sensitive adolescent boy. Covered by Simon and Garfunkel during their last concert in Queens ('70).

Yesterday's answer: "Surrender" by The King. "Surrender" by the King. Not quite the Cheap Trick version. The original song was "Torna A Surriento".
