Barry Mann, Who Put The Bomp (in the Bomp Bomp Bomp)










I think the title speaks for itself. Absolute doo-wop gem! No matter what type of day you’re having I guarantee this will cheer you up!

Song: Who Put The Bomp
Artist: Barry Mann
Writers: Barry Mann & Gerry Goffin 
Year Released: 1961
Notes: In this song, Mann sings about the frequent use of nonsense lyrics in Doo-Wop music, and how his girl fell in love with him after listening to several such songs.

The single debuted on Billboard’s Hot 100 on August 7, 1961, and remained for twelve weeks, peaking at # 7. Mann’s version did not chart in the UK, though a cover version by the Viscounts reached # 21 there in September, 1961, and another version by Showaddywaddy charted at # 37 in August, 1982.
