Not Me 45 byThe Orlons

Not me The Orlons

The Orlons were formed in Philadelphia during the early 1960s. They consisted of Rosetta Hightower, Marlena Davis, Steve Caldwell, and Shirley Brickley. Their first three hits, “The Wah-Watusi,” “Don’t Hang Up,” and “South Street,” all made the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart top five.

During the early summer of 1963 they covered a Gary U.S. Bonds song that had failed to reach the Pop Chart in 1961. Maybe it needed a female girl sound but they took “Not Me” to number 12 on the BILLBOARD Chart.

The Orlons would chart nine singles, 1962-1964, but would fade from the scene during the British Invasion era. They would disnand in 1968.
