WPON-AM 1460 - Insane World Of Mike Sain - Group Names With Numbers - July 21, 2004


The "Insane World Of Mike Sain" airs every Wednesday at 9:00 AM Eastern Time on WPON-AM 1460 Detroit both on the air and on the Internet. This morning's theme was group names with numbers.

Notes:

  • "Traces" by the Classics IV was also a chart hit for the Lettermen in 1970 (as a medley).
  • The Three Chuckles (who named themselves after the Chuckles candy bar) are best remembered for their 1954 hit, "Runaround." The Three Chuckles 1953 lineup consisted of Tommy Romano, Tommy "Russ" Gilberto And Teddy Randazzo. The group recorded about 20 songs, their last one in 1956. "So Long" was recorded as a single in 1955 (X-0134 b/w "You Should Have Told Me").
  • "Dedicated To The One I Love" by the "5" Royales was also a chart hit for the Shirelles (1959 and 1961), the Mamas & the Papas (1967), the Temprees (1972), and Bernadette Peters (1981).
  • The Dave Clark Five had two different songs with very similar titles, i.e., "Everybody Knows (I Still Love You)" (1964) and "Everybody Knows" (1968). Both songs have similar story lines about a guy whose girlfriend does not love him back and treats him badly.
  • "Lazy Bonnie" by the Four Imperials was released as a single ca. 1958 (Dot 15737 b/w "Let's Make A Scene").
  • "After The Party" by the Pixies Three was the B-side song of their 1964 hit "Gee." "After The Party" and other Pixies 3 songs can be found on the hard-to-find CD "Our History."
  • "Master Jack" was the chart debut song for Four Jacks & A Jill.
  • "Connie-O" by the 4 Seasons was the B-side song of their 1962 chart topping "Big Girls Don't Cry."
  • The Five Satins' classic "In The Still Of The Night" charted in 1956, 1960, and 1961. "In The Still Of The Nite" was also a chart hit for Santo & Johnny (1964), Paul Anka (1969), and Boyz II Men (1993).
