I thought it was Frankie Lyman and the Juniors.
EllisClevenger PeterRoff 10 months ago
I thought so, also.
But, according to Wikipedia (Iknow, I know), it was Danny and the Juniors and Frankie Lymon and the Teenagers.

I have to say I never encountered "Katrina and the Waves". What's a song from them that makes a good introduction?

BTW - thanks harlowe1313 and Cynthia for the music suggestions. I love "The Killing Moon" and "Cities in Dust" (I love the whole 'Tinderbox' album.) :)
Walking On Sunshine (Oh Oh) and don't it feel good!
Of course! I know the tune- just never associated a band with it. Thank you!

They also recorded the original version of "Going Down to Liverpool" which was later covered by the Bangles.

Try "The Killing Moon" out on the Youtube for a great introduction.
