"You're Sixteen" by Johnny Burnette.

OK, back to the 60's: This Memphis native was a founding member of The Rock And Roll Trio. His first hit, "Dreamin' ", peaked at #11 in 1960. His biggest hit was a Sherman Brothers composition that went up to #8 in '60 and was a Certified Gold Disc. Part of the "American Graffiti" soundtrack ('73). Ringo Starr's '74 cover topped the charts. It features Harry Nilsson on background vocals and Macca on kazoo, making it the only #1 hit to feature a kazoo solo. Carrie Fisher appears on the '78 video. Artist? Biggest hit?

Yesterday's answer: Andrew Jones' "When You Dance" by The Turbans and Fred Perris' "In The Still Of the Night" by The Five Satins.
