Book Of Love by The Monotones

The members of the Monotones:

*Lead Singer: Charles Patrick (born September 11, 1938)
*First Tenor: Warren Davis (born March 1, 1939)
*Second Tenor: George Malone (January 5, 1940 -- October 5, 2007)
*Bass Singer: John Franklin Smith (May 17, 1939 -- November 26, 2000)
*Second Bass Singer: John Ryanes (November 16, 1940 -- May 30, 1972)
*Baritone: Warren Ryanes (December 14, 1937 -- June 16, 1982)

Hailing from Newark NJ. (pronounced Nork!)

Book Of Love peaked at #5 on the Billboard Pop charts in 1958

There was a clip in "green and white" on youtube that had more cutaways to the audience than anything. They also edited out a verse. So, I made it true black and white, and edited the bits together to make a whole performance. The original lofi audio was from the TV studio and had claps mixed in, so I flew in the original track and compressed it a little. I made this because there were no real videos of this great band performing this great tune. The song was inspired by a Pepsodent toothpaste commercial. "You'll wonder where the yellow went, when you brush your teeth with Pepsodent". http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iPsoxmXjtfc

I do not own the rights to any of this, just a fan.
(Frank O' The Mountain 2011)

A copy recently surfaced with the Full Dick Clark intro and the missing verse. Time for another edit! Charles and Warren, bless you guys for the great tune!

One-Hit "Wonders" of all time - hmm, "I wonder..."

Автор ralphyboy25 ( назад)
Ironic how elements of songs form. From Wikipedia it states:

The "boom" part of the song was a result of a kid kicking a ball against
the garage while they were rehearsing. It sounded good, so they added it to
the song
