Good Lovin’ By The Young Rascals

Joey Dee and The Starliters had a huge hit with “Peppermint Twist. Joey’s backing band became the breeding ground for a Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame band as Felix Cavaliere, Eddie Brigati, and Gene Cornish would recruit drummer Dino Danelli and form the Young Rascals and help invent the term blue-eyed soul.

Their second single, “Good Lovin'” proved to be one of the signature singles of the 1960’s. The song had originally been released by the Olympics but the Rascals moved it over to an energetic rock and roll classic.

“Good Lovin'” entered the top 100 on March 12, 1966. Seven weeks later, on April 30, it reached number one.

By the time they had their second number one hit, mercifully the uniforms were gone.
