Many have emailed about Ray Whitley following yesterday's post. One of the greatest composers of the Hey Baby Days, Ray Whitley was responsible for some of the era's greatest songs (some of which were hits in other genres)i.e. provided there is a genre other than Beach Music.
"Dancing Mood" - originally recorded by the Tams, it's a classic in Reggae
"Be Young, Be Foolish Be Happy" (with J.R. Cobb) - a southern anthem
"Hey Girl, Don't Bother Me" - No 1 in England
"What Kind of Fool ( Do You Think I Am )"
"I've Been Hurt" one of the biggest songs of the party ; original Tams' but covered by many
"You Lied To Your Daddy"
"Laugh It Off"
AND MANY MORE...
"Too Much Fooling Around"
