Carr scored number 3 on the Billboard 100 and #2 in the UK & AUS with this single in 1966.
In reality this was my favorite song out of all the hits from “The Shirelles” and there were a lot of them. And nobody could have repeated their exact rendition as good.
But when the summer of love in 67′ exploded and the tide turned once again with the arrival of the hippie generation, there was one group that put their own arrangement to this song in 1969 and it seem to come out with the same perfection as the original for its day.
