REVIEWS
Average points: 5.23 (Reviews: 30)
****
Flottes Debüt in den US-Charts, # Mitte 1958 eine # 22.
******
Flotter Rock 'n' Roll Schlager von zeitloser Klasse. In der Version von Showaddywaddy war "I Wonder Why" 1978 noch einmal ein Tophit.
*****
Dion war schon einer der besten der damaligen Zeit.
******
Wurde mal in den Siebzigern von Showaddywaddy gecovert, auch mit viel Schmackes, aber ist und bleibt als Original der Doo-Wop-Szene unerreicht!
*****
yep...toller song...findet sich auch auf dem soundtrack von john carpenters film "christine"...die sequenz in der der plymouth fury auf geheimnisvolle weise wieder aufersteht...eine geniale szene
*****
dön dön dön dön dödödaaaaa!!!
******
Wurde alles schon erwähnt, was ich zu diesem genialen Song sagen könnte. Ausser: er gefällt mir sehr gut.
****
ja, ein feiner happysound..tendiert aber leicht zum nerver..
******
Super Song!!
******
...geniales Stück Musik... !
******
Klasse!!!
******
Traumhaft dieser Song!
*****
.... & the Belmonts.
Eine der bekanntesten Doo-Wop-Nummern. Kultig!
******
Die Bass-Line zieht mir jedes mal die Schuhe aus. Super!
*****
sehr guter und fröhlich aufgelegter Doo Wop-Titel aus 1958 - 5*...
*****
Nuja für die 50er schon recht gutes Lied.
Ebenfalls auf dem Soundtrack zu "In den Strassen der Bronx" drauf.
****
Ganz lüpfiges Liedchen, auch wenn der eine Sänger mit
seiner mega-hohen Stimme ein bisschen gar "tuntenhaft"
daherkommt....
******
erstklassig
*****
▒ Geweldige 'Golden Oldie' uit april 1958 van de Amerikaanse formatie "Dion And The Belmonts" !!! Heel éénvoudig, maar toch nog altijd héél leuk ☺!!!
****
flotter Gute-Laune-Song von 1958 - 4.5*

das war noch Musik
*****
...da stimme ich zu! - erfrischend frisch dieser schon recht 'betagte' aber so beschwingte Klassetitel -...
*****
Sehr schöner Oldie, von beiden Künstern Dion, sowie Showaddywaddy toll. Showaddywaddy fand ich schon in meiner Jugendzeit ganz toll.
******
Great
******
Une mélodie superbement bien trouvée.
*****

Knapp gut.
*****
... also bei allem Respekt für das Original, ... ich finde die Showaddywaddy-Version sogar noch etwas besser und ausgereifter ...
*****
Ein toller Oldie und vor allem schon fantastisch gesungen.

Gibt's auch im Rahmen der Reihe "Ein Jahr und seine 20 Songs (SZ Diskothek)".
