This lame version of “Da Doo Ron Ron” not to be confused with The Crystals #3 hit from 1963. Another Phil Spector classic. Shaun Cassidy was another of those manufactured teen idols with little talent. He had a television show The Hardy Boys- never saw it but I remember my sister watching it. The half brother of David Cassidy- Shaun didn’t have half the talent. After a short string of hits- 3 Top 10 hits- he was deposited into the trash heap never to be heard from again.His chart singles go in an interesting order -#1, #3, #7, #31 #80 and then into oblivion. It only took a little over a year. He’s 62 now- I can’t having seen him since well the late 70’s. Update he’s been married three times and has eight children- so I guess he has been busy.

    • So did my sister… I think I have her single in my collection. Obviously I am someone who doesn’t throw anything away.
