LOVE this! ♡
RELEASED IN 1963 BY THE 'MAJORS' WHO STOLE THE 'TRA LA LA' CHORUS FROM THE 'MAGNIFICENT FOUR'S' 1961 RECORDING OF 'THE CLOSER YOU ARE'. LISTEN CLOSELY AND IMMEDIATLEY RECOGNIZE THE REPEATED CHORUS THE MAJORS STOLE FOR THIS RECORD.
thought i was gonna hear "happy birthday sweet sixteen" after that first couple seconds
So much like jimmy jones...pretenders
This is P-H-I-L-A-D-EL-P-H-I-A ALL THE WAY!
One of the greatest songs of all time. The music, the vocals, the tempo...
Love this Philly Doo Wop!!!
OMG LOVE IT. HAD ME DANCING IN MY SEAT! THANKS FOR POSTING!!
Very cool rocker!
I Thought this was a girl when I first heard this But I listen to the words
100% Doo-Wop....haven't heard it many years ! tnx
Interesting because the lead does sounds alittle like the Majors lead in "Wonderful Dream" thank you PJ for those liner notes & facts.
It is the same lead, Ricky Cordo
This is my absolute favorite record by this group, and they made so many great songs.
You are so right PJ. I should have looked up the info before posting as I learned there were 6 Major's groups. I almost always prefer a groups early to mid 50s tunes. Seems like in the late 50s and early 60s many groups changed their music style to appeal to a "broader" audience. :o)
Great 60s, doo wop!! One of the few tunes I really dig
Different group. This is Ricky Cordo and The Majors from Philly. They started out as The Versatiles around 1960
Do you know if any members of the group are deceased?
This is a far cry from their early 50s recordings!
Fantastic.. Indeed...What a wonderful memory..
Cynthia's Channel memories really not that good but I'm just trying to remember to do well I really like all music 60 seventies eighties nineties even the twenties that's so much now cuz it's also not really music if you ask me but thank you very much hang in there kiddo we'll get through this together keeps you young at heart my heart I feel like a teenager when I talk to you thank you so much
