A song written by Tom Shannon and Phil Todaro in 1961. It was performed as a demo that had vocals and music by the Russ Hallet Trio. It was intended to be a theme song for Shannon's WKBW radio show in Buffalo, NY. The Rebels asked Shannon if they could play his theme song at a record hop in Buffalo, NY. The Rebels performed it there. Shannon and Todaro liked it and they got The Rebels to record it in a recording studio that was in the same building as the record hop. It was a hit, but only locally.
A couple of years later, it was reissued by Swan Records. It reached #8 on the national charts.
