Freeman struggled to follow up this song with another hit. His next single, "Betty Lou Got A New Pair Of Shoes," stalled at #37. He got no higher until 1964, when "C'mon And Swim
," inspired by the dance he popularized, went to #5. That one was produced and co-written by Sly Stone, marking the first hit he worked on. Freeman never again cracked the Top 40, but he performed for years to come, with "Do You Want To Dance" his showstopper.
