Dotty Defies You Not To Be Cheered Up By Frankie


Don’t worry, I’m not going to post 50 videos a day, I’ll make some pages to put the videos on and then you don’t have to watch them – but you HAVE to watch this – I was elated to find original footage of this and a couple of other songs of theirs and I’m going to put them on my page. And Dion & the Belmonts, The Chantels, The Cleftones and loads and loads of others – ALL MY FAVOURITES!!

Absolutely brilliant.

    2 . . .3 . . .4 . . .5/6! Hope you can’t see me bopping around the room! Thanks for this.

    • Dear yeltnuh,

      You’re welcome. If you like this, I’ve made a start on my Doo-Wop collection. There’s only one group in there so far (12 songs, one group).:-)

      Love Dotty xxx

  2. Why Dotty, I do declare…I’m cheered!

  3. Hmm….it said the video is blocked in my country.

  4. Dearest Dotty,
    ONe of my favoirte tunes of all time:

    • Dear Dags,

      IS IT? I’ve listened to it about 3 times today, I debated whether or not to post it with Baby, Baby. I LOVE IT TOO. I’m going to put it on my Frankie page when I make it. Go and look at what I’ve got in my doo wop collection so far.:-)

      Love Dotty xxx

  5. Took me right back to memories of my youth…and that was a long take. The marine layer has settled in here and I needed some up wop…thanks m’dear.

    • Dear paralaxvu,

      I wish I’d been an American teenager in those days, not with all the bad stuff going on but in a little bubble of doo wop and love.:-)

      Love Dotty xxx

  6. Dear Dotty. Yes, he’s amazing – I’ll be watching your new Doo-Wop pages avidly. Did you know Frankie was from Huddersfield – few people believe me when I tell them this!

    • Dear Daniel,

      I’m pleased you like the doo wop pages.:-)

      Why do you say Frankie was born in Huddersfield? Everything I’ve ever read says he was born in Harlem. I REALLY want to know what you know.:-)

      Love Dotty xxx

      • Dear Dotty,
        I now see I have been confusing him all along with James Harold Wilson, Baron Wilson of Rievaulx, KG, OBE, FRS, FSS, PC, who was definitely born in Huddersfield. If only I had looked more closely at that statue outside the station!

      • Dear Daniel,

        An understandable mistake. I’d have thought the same thing myself.:-)

        Love Dotty xxx

  7. Dear Dotty,
    Your video – I couldn’t watch – it said it is banned in my country for copyright reasons!!! WTF? Happily, a video embedded in the comments is unrestricted. What a buttercup!


Write a little note to Dotty.
