The Spaniels sound like a perfect candidate for the Fluffy, Four Legged, Barking & Drooling Hall of Fame

The Spaniels are probably one of the more deserving one-hit wonders, but I probably still wouldn't put 'em in. "Goodnight Sweetheart Goodnight" is an all-time classic. Not to mention they were the first act to release a single on Vee-Jay records, if that means anything to you.

Yes, Yes I'm aware of that don't misunderstand me I actually like The Spaniels I just thought I'd make a little joke (seemed like a good idea at the time) :)

"Goodnight, Sweetheart, Goodnight." really good song.

Goodnight, Sweetheart, Goodnight is an essential doo-wop song, but as with The Crows, Big Danny Oliver, and other one-hit wonder R&B/doo-wop acts, I don't see a strong enough case for the Spaniels. I have to agree with Philip on this one, and I'm as big a fan of '50s music as you'll find.

Can't think of anything the Spaniels sang that I didn't like. Some of their stuff could be used to make a transition from Perry Como to doo wop. One or a group can't fake being on key, enunciating, etc. when one or a group sings acpapella. Too little credit is given this musical art form that the Spaniels mastered.

Security Question:

Which letter is Springsteen's band named after?
