  1. I read the article and was surprised to learn that this song, which I remember well, was written by JP Richardson, the Big Bopper of “Chantilly Lace” fame. The ooga-chucka guys were Richardson and country star George Jones. Richardson died with Buddy Holly and Richie Valens. Is George Jones still kickin’?

  2. Bummer….I remember hearing that on the radio when I was a kid. Very popular at the time. Another piece of our history laid to rest….
