What do you do when you’re in a recording session with only five minutes left before your time is up? Today’s group came up with a #1 record in record time.

Producer Luther Dixon and label owner Florence Greenberg wrote the song on the spot and a group four teenage girls, by this time, seasoned pros despite their tender age recorded it in one take.  It knocked former G.I. Elvis Presley from the top spot during this week in May, 1962 and by coincidence it was a song about a current G.I. – it was the Shirelles with “Soldier Boy.”
