This was Bobby Vee's first and only #1 hit. Released on August 7th,1961, it immediately began to climb up the Billboard Charts, and by September 18th, 1961 it had reached #1, staying there for three weeks. It is no surprise, given it was written by the legendary Brill Building songwriting team of Gerry Goffin and Carole King, the song featured an irresistible melody along with inspired and sincere lyrics. Add to that an equally sincere and strong vocal performance by Bobby Vee and you have one of the greatest hits of all time.

Bobby Vee, who was 15 years old, along with a band called The Shadows were a fill in act for the Winter Dance Party Tour in 1959. This was after Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper were killed in a plane crash.

His death was due to Alzheimer's disease. RIP Bobby.
