Wikipedia has a list of one hit wonders for 1960’s but I have to question why the Temptations would be included on this list. I can understand the Hollywood Argyles being included with their Alley Oop recording since I never heard from them again.
Alley Oop was a hit by the Hollywood Argyles in 1960 and the lead vocalist Norm Davis made the hefty sum of $25 for singing in the recording. The singers weren’t even an official group since they only got together for studio recordings.
The singers were drunk on cider by the time the song was recorded according to Wikipedia.
An interesting note about Alley Oop is that it was the first song played on WLS radio in Chicago when it changed from a farm format to rock and roll.
The Alley Oop comic strip which originated in 1932 was the inspiration for the song written by Dallas Frazier.
This list of 1960’s One Hit Wonders will bring back memories to those of us who were living at the time:
