Along with its B-side, "Hang up My Rock and Roll Shoes" (which peaked at #29), this was Chuck Willis' last Top 40 hit.
Willis, "The King of the Stroll," usually wore a turban onstage.
The single was released two weeks after Willis died on the operating table. The cause of death was a long-neglected bleeding ulcer. (thanks, Brad Wind - Miami, FL, for above 3)
