It's a great little song; I had a liking for the Juice Newton version from the early 80s. I think it was a bit of an influence on Annie Get Your Gun by Squeeze; they took some of it's bounce, and that main Eddie Cochran meets Buddy Holly thing that's going on.
Scary to think that when this was made 1959 was only as far in the past as 1989 is now...*gulp*Squeeze and Dave? The pub rock connection!

Getting my ears around it right now.
Ooh good choice HMeisterH. I remember hearing this at my mate Ian Randall's party when I was about 9, when the ginger minx Joanne Hopwood sat on my lap. We were like the Montgomery Junior School Liz Burton & Richard Burton for about a fortnight - until she disowned me when I turned up one day wearing my newly-acquired national health service specs. C'est la vie.His version of Girls Talk was terrific too.
"Liz Burton and Richard Burton". what am I like? (I suppose that's sort of technically correct, though. Ish)
There are some things you can't cover up with lipstick and powder. Where is the ginger minx Joanne Hopwood now eh Kips?
Not sure! Funnily enough, though, I ended up working with her cousin about ten years later and sixty-odd miles away. It's a small world sometimes and no mistake guv!
Ginger minxes. What are they like!
Bargain at twice the price. Why is Oxfam closing?I also have that '59 to '89 feeling often when I wonder what my little nippers will make of the music I listen to.
Oxfam sold up - it'll probably become another hairdresser or estate agents. It was a books/music one too, so right up my street (literally).
