Written by Johnny Kidd, this rocker is about the feeling you get near a great looking girl. It was a huge hit in England, but didn't make a dent elsewhere until Chad Allen and the Expressions recorded the song in 1965. When their version was released, their label wanted to create some intrigue for the Canadian group and maybe pass them off as a British Invasion band. So, the single was credited to "Guess Who?", which is what is said on the label. Disc Jockeys thought the group was actually named The Guess Who, and that's the name that stuck. Their version went to #1 in Canada and hit #22 in the US.
The Guess Who didn't like their new name, but their record company insisted they keep it, as that's what every media outlet was calling them. To make things worse, The Who started their rise to fame around the same time, and the groups were often confused with each other. The Guess Who would get requests for "My Generation
," and The Who would be asked to play this song, which they often did: their version can be heard on the 1970 album Live At Leeds
