Oh lord, I dropped off Awesomest.'s surface for a while, now I dropped right back on, like some kind of bloggering boomerang.
Here's a song I spent a lot of time actually finding and I finally got it. It's a '56 doo wop number and was used very effectively by Martin Scorcese in the wonderful After Hours - Teri Garr is a waitress in a bar where our intrepid hero Griffin Dunn ends up in, and there's music on the jukebox playing. One of the songs playing is this one and I instantly loved it.
