Song of the day: Candy and The Kisses

Song of the day (4/1/2010):
Candy & The Kisses - Do the 81

These are the kinds of songs in my head when I wake up...

Gamble and Huff, hoping to cash in on a new dance craze (there seemed to be one just about every five minutes in the early '60s), spawned by a Martha & The Vandellas recording called In My Lonely Room, quickly penned a lively, bombastic song, The 81 (the inexplicable name of the new dance). Candy & The Kisses emerged from the Cameo Records studio with a 2 minute, 33-second gem which they simply hoped would be a hit. Little did they know they had just laid down a dance classic that would be remembered over forty years later. [read more]

You can find this track on the Cameo Parkway 1957-1967 compilation.

I've heard this before from you...the beginning sounds like "Kiss", Prince.
