Go Away Little Girl

Album: Greatest Hits: Donny Osmond (1971)
Charted: 1
  • The second solo single to be released by Donny Osmond, this was a cover of Steve Lawrence's 1962 chart-topper "Go Away Little Girl." When Donny's own version also reached the summit of the Hot 100, it became the first song of the Rock era to be taken to the top of the charts by two different artists. The second song to accomplish this feat was "The Loco-Motion" by Little Eva (1962), then Grand Funk (1974). The husband-and-wife songwriting team of Gerry Goffin and Carole King penned both tunes.
