Catchy tune. This should have come up on Memorial Day as the song- I was sitting watching Andy Griffith and all the sudden I had an attack of vertigo- the line “I’m so dizzy my head is spinning”- Barney Fife was turning sideways on me.

The Wrecking Crew did the instrumentation on this- which means it was another #1 hit with Hal Blaine on the drums. “Dizzy” would be the only #1 hit for Tommy Roe.
