Song of the Day Nov 14

November 14, 2023

Today our song is: Alley Oop by The Hollywood Argyles

Wikipedia tells us this about the song:

"Alley Oop" is a song written and composed by Dallas Frazier in 1957. The song was inspired by the V. T. Hamlin-created comic strip of the same name. 

The Hollywood Argyles, a short-lived studio band, recorded the song in 1960, and it reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #3 on the US R&B chart. It also went to #24 on the UK chart. It was produced by Gary Paxton, who also sang lead vocals. At the time, Paxton was under contract to Brent Records, where he recorded as Flip of Skip & Flip.




  1. This was the first song played on WLS when they went Top 40 in 1960.

  2. This is just a fun, dumb song that I always enjoy
