If I searched this whole wide world
I’d never, never, never find me a girl
Who’d love me the way that you do
Huh, cause you’re, shama-lama, huh
in my rama-lama-ding-dong, baby, huh
You put the ooooh-mau-mau, oh-oh-oh-oh
(Back) into my smile child
Hey, that is why (that is why)
That is why (that is why)
You are my sugar-doo-dee-doop, huh (yeah)

You put the shama-lama, baby, ding-dong
Hey, you put the ooooh-mau-mau, oh-oh-oh-oh
Back into my smile child, huh
That is why (that is why)
That is why (that is why)
You are my sugar-doo-dee-doop (yeah)

And I love this love we share
Stronger than the others
No one else can compare
Stronger than the highest mountain and the deepest sea

Hey, you put the shama-lama baby in my rama-lama, ding-dong
Hey, you put the ooooh-mau-mau, oh-oh-oh-oh
Back into my smile child
Hey, that is why (that is why)
That is why (that is why)
You are my sugar-doo-dee-doop (yeah)

Shama-lama baby in my rama-lama, ding-dong
Hey, you put the ooooh-mau-mau, oh-oh-oh-oh
Back into my smile child, huh
Hey, that is why (that is why)
That is why (that is why)
You are my sugar-doo-dee-doop (yeah)

Great! I had forgotten all about those guys! My fave cover of Papa Ooh Mow Mow was by the Beach Boys in a live concert recording from ‘64 or ‘65 iirc.

The original was done by the Trashmen......and called Surfin' Bird. Very popular with the troops in VN and later on in Iraq, Joe.

I’m showing my age. This was a favorite of mine when I was a kid. An all-time classic.

I still have the original 45. They played it at my birthday party. We even had a special dance for it. Life is good!

Awesome, thanks. Caught this guy on Huckabee the other day. Dion and the Belmonts singing Runaround Sue. Great beat as they used to say on American Bandstand.

Whenever a aged hippie talks to me about Woodstock and how meaningful it was, I always like to remind him/her that Sha Na Na played there, where they were followed on stage by jimi Hendrix. Sort of puts the whole “Three Days of Peace and Music” thing in perspective.

Buddy's dead? Why didn't somebody tell me?

(He played a J-45 when he wasn't playing his Stratocaster; and yes, I've left a guitar pick at his grave in Lubbock. Twice. Hasn't everyone?).

Buddy Holly J-45

Wait—maybe some of the Volumes are still alive.

I didn't click on your link, but if it's the Fleetwoods, then it must be Come Softly To Me. I was the oldies deejay in college, in the days when I would stop in every five and dime in every small town and ask if I could see the dusty box of records in the dusty back storage room.

They all had one. Old records that were no longer on display out front, and they were willing to sell them for next to nothing.

Nothing like buying Buddy Holly albums in the original cello wrap in 1974, or original 45s of Dion and the Belmonts. Or original Maddox Brothers and Sister Rose albums. Or original 78s of Kay Kyser and his Kollege of Musical Knowledge, featuring Sully, Ginny, Harry and Ish Kabibble singing Three Little Fishies.

I need to leave this thread before I go to the basement and start pulling out boxes and boxes of 45s, 78s, and LPs.

Fletcher Henderson & His Orchestra had a hit in 1936 with an earlier (but not the original) version of “Sing, Sing, Sing (With a Swing)!” The lyrics make references to hits of the day, such as Riley & Farley’s “The Music Goes ‘Round and ‘Round” and Cab Calloway’s 1931 hit “Minnie the Moocher.” Listen to it here:

In 1947, four years after this Delta Rhythm Boys hit, Waring's Pennsylvanians gave "Dry Bones" the Spike Jones treatment, with sound effects. Listen to it here.

the Big Bopper

J. P. (Jiles Perry) Richardson. Disc jockey at KTRM in Beamont, Texas (neighboring Port Arthur gave us Janis Joplin). He wrote "White Lightning", recorded by George Jones as his first #1, and "Running Bear" for Johnny Preston (from Sabine Pass, TX, where Richardson was born).

The Big Bopper had the flu that night, and Waylon Jennings, who was playing bass for Buddy Holly, gave up his seat. Richardson died along with Holly, Ritchie Valens (who won a coin flip with Tommy Allsup) and pilot Roger Peterson.

Sorry, when it involves Texas, old music trivia, and Charles Hardin Holley (he dropped the 'e' professionally), I get carried away.

Yeah, I remember that version, too. Sounds very familiar when I listen to it now. As you say, it was 1936, not 1927 as YouTube says.

The Goodman version is partly adlibbed, as was their custom. After Benny comes in, the whole band picks up his revised theme.
