I am lucky that sometimes I get to watch things at work that some people watch for pleasure. Working through a compilation of pop songs taken from various programmes of the 60s, 70s and 80s, it was with great delight that I came across this gem. I vaguely knew the song but it was this delightful, albeit lip-synced, rendition that made me go wow!
Reparata & the Delrons were never really famous like the Shangri-Las and this wasn't even a hit in the USA but it was a top twenty success over here in 1968. 1968! It sounds more like a song from the late 70s.
It was sampled by Betty Boo for her pop classic from 1990, "Doin' the Do". Watch out for the superb use of the "you're" from the line "You're going to lose a good thing".
