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!

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

My mom & dad went to school with them but were a couple of years younger. I
turn 50 on Christmas Eve. So, So thankful that I was raised on all doo-wop
since I was very young. I've listened & collected all of the old songs
throughout my whole life. No music ever made me feel better & happier. I
was born in 1964, so I just missed growing up in the Greatest Era our
country has ever seen! For music, anyway. My collection of 50's & 60's is
extremely expansive. Such a shame that today's youth are raised with mostly
offensive lyrics and rap instead of harmony.

It's a simple song, but it is still great after all these years. I was a
teenager when they came out with it. I long for the days . Music made sense
, nobody needed to talk trash, and the country was happier then.

I love this song. I was once at a workshop with Harville Hendrix who leads
all these relationship workshops and has writtne some very well known books
including Getting the Love You Want. I went up to him in the lunch line and
I told him about the song and I said I guess you wrote the book. And if you
look it at broadly it does kind of fit in with his message.
Finally, I am blown away that this was inspired by the Pepsodent
commercial. Never would have guessed in a million years.

The BOOK OF LOVE was a big hit in my old neighborhood, Long Island City, NY
11101. The great part is there were no color schemes during this era in
terms of rock & roll's popularity. Black & White groups all performed
together and everyone enjoyed the music. BTW, bring back the Brooklyn
Dodgers to complete the entire 50s living-it-up scenario,
