Album: The Best Of The DiamondsReleased: 1957Charted:
This was a cover version of a Chuck Willis hit written by Clyde Otis and Nancy Lee. This song made "The Stroll" a dance craze in the late '50s and was a popular and continuously played song on ABC TVs American Bandstand.
Far more staid than The Twist, The Monkey, The Watusi, or most other dances of the ear, The Stoll was a mellow slide-step dance, as the name implies. (thanks, Bob - Comox, B.C., Canada)
