Written by Gerry Goffin and Carole King, this was the only Top 10 Pop hit for Scott, although he did very well on the R&B charts. Scott may be best known for his 1968 single "(You) Got What I Need," which was the basis for Biz Markie's 1989 hit "Just A Friend." Scott died on June 4, 2007 at age 74.

On January 9th 1972, "Hey Girl" by the Donny Osmond peaked at #9 (for 2 weeks) on the Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; it had entered the chart on November 21st, 1971 and spent 10 weeks on the Top 100...
It reached #21 on Billboard's Adult Contemporary Tracks chart...
The record's flip-side was a cover of Billy Joe Royal's 1965 #14 hit "I Knew you When"; and it got a fair amount of AM radio air play...
Mr. Osmond celebrated his 56th birthday one month ago today on December 9th (2013).

Billy Joel recorded a decent version that's pretty loyal to Freddie Scott's.

Michael McDonald and Ray Charles sang it on the Genius Loves Company album in 2004. Charles had loved Michael's version from his Blink of an Eye album. They had previously sung it at a Yamaha celebration but it wasn't included on the video.
