- The Jolly Green Giant 1965
- Louie Louie 1963
(This oldies garage band classic was originally based on a Jamaican love song, but it stirred up a lot of controversy when it was first released because of its unintelligible lyrics. This song recharted for the Kingsmen in 1966 and also became a hit for the Sandpipers that same year. John Belushi (1978) and the Fat Boys (1988) also had a hit with this song.)
- Money 1964
(This song was previously a hit for Barrett Strong (1960) and later also became a hit for Junior Walker & the All Stars (1966) and the Flying Lizards (1980).)
