The 101 number one song of the day required spoonfeeding, mothering, big sistering and even reprimanding just to get it recorded.  And that’s not all – something else one rarely sees in a recording studio was brought in to finish the job.


Ellie Greenwich was the writer and she found the four girls who made up today’s featured group difficult to work with.  Lead singer Mary Weiss was 16 at the time and the microphone in her face inhibited her.  She was also quite emotional and she was encouraged to let that emotion flow freely.  Listen closely and you will hear her crying as she sings.  The song reached number one this week in 1964.  Oh – and that thing rarely seen in a recording studio?  It was a big hog, as in motorcycle.  It was the Shangri-Las.
