Happy birthday to Dion DiMucci who turns 72 today. Back in 1959 he fronted the vocal group The Belmonts, and they were the first to record the lovely "A Teenager In Love" written by Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman. In May 1959 the song was actually in the British charts by three different acts at the same time, the other two versions being by British singers Marty Wilde and Craig Douglas. Dion & The Belmonts' version is the one for posterity though, a doo-wop classic.
Watch and listen
