  • A song that spent two weeks at the top of the charts in October 1961 came as a result of a party in a schoolyard, according to its co-writer and performer, and became a jam that lasted about 45 minutes.  The woman's name in the title was just a generic one, as it was really about any woman with a fear of commitment.  The artist's wife always joked to friends that the song was about her.  This song became the first hit for Dion with The Belmonts not providing backup vocals.  This time, support came from the Del Satins, and it became Dion's biggest hit as well as his only #1 song.........
