  1. I know it’s the same song but I always felt The Cleftones took major liberties with the melody..(not that there’s anything wrong with that!)…but Jan and Dean stayed with the tune (mostly!)…enjoy your blog!

  2. Thanks!

    Jan and Dean concentrated on remakes of old songs even after Heart and Soul – their next top forty record was a remake of 1947’s Linda…and then they recorded Surf City with Brian Wilson and everything changed!

  3. It would have been nice if u mentioned Herbie Cox the lead singer of the Cleftones who is no sadly in a Senior Rehab facility and reportedly not doing well

  4. Herb was indeed the lead singer for the group. I’m sorry to hear about his health problems. We can only hope he gets the care he needs to improve.

    In addition to singing with the group, Herb also wrote several of their singles, including Little Girl of Mine (which was used in the film A Bronx Tale) and Can’t We Be Sweethearts
