Two songs: Hang On Sloopy & Let’s Dance

Gary: Christmas 2014 has come and gone and I hope all of our blog followers had a good one.  I was listening to a song tonight, “Peanut Butter” recorded in 1961 by the Marathons.  Then I remembered that they had 3 hits in the top 40 under 3 different names https://strathdee.wordpress.com/2011/05/21/the-jayhawks-the-vibrations-the-marathons/ 

I also noticed that I missed one as the Vibrations had another hit in 1964 “ My Girl Sloopy” which also had 3 groups, that all made the song a hit.  I will look at two Songs, “My Girl Sloopy” (or Hang on Sloopy) and a song written by Chris Montez called  “Let’s Dance”.
