OK, a little history coming your way: The first time the term "doo-wop" appeared in print was in the Chicago Defender in '61. D.J. Gus Gossert is widely credited with coining the phrase. Early "doo-wop" variation uses include "Good Loving" by the Clovers ('53), "Never" by The Dundees aka The Calvanes ('54) and "Mary Lee" by the Rainbows ('55). Name the first two songs to actually use "doo-wop" in their refrains.

Yesterday's answer: "Slow Down". Never get tired of listening to The Young Rascals' self-titled debut album. A classic!
