Doo Wah Diddy Diddy

“Doo Wah Diddy Diddy” was written by Jeff Barry and Ellie Greenwich and originally recorded in 1963 by the American vocal group The Exciters. Their version topped out at #78 on the hot 100.

Shortly thereafter, it was covered by British band Manfred Mann. That version was an international hit in 1964 and spent two weeks No. 1 in the UK Singles Chart in August, and two weeks at the No. 1 spot in the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in October.
