Rear View Mirror #5: Wheels

I had completely forgotten about this one. However, when I heard it, I immediately remembered it.

“Wheels” by the String-A-Longs went all the way to #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1961. It sold over a million copies and won a gold disc.

Reportedly the tune was actually originally titled as “Tell the World” and was to be paired with another instrumental called “Wheels”. In manufacturing, however, the labels were put on the wrong sides of the records — so “Tell the World” became “Wheels”.

The Ventures covered this tune on one of their albums.
