I've seen a few oldies TV DooWop specials where they've had the orig members singing this. They STILL do it justice. This makes me so nostalgic ..more so than does some songs and groups hits. Perhaps, it's 'cause of my late (may he R.I.P.) brother (6 yrs older) and I shared a love of these songs.
Crests (w/ Johnny Maestro as lead singer), Skyliners, Johnny Maestro/BrooklynBridge and Drifters songs affect me this way. Oh yeah, Sam Cooke and Brook Benton...etc.
Incidentally, I consider this singer to have one of the best falsettoes of all time, particularly for a white boy.
