Dave 'Baby' Cortez- The Happy Organ
My Mom has always claimed this song as a favorite and no matter how much fun I used to make of it as a kid, "The Happy Organ" really is a great song. I love instrumental "oldies" especially one with this much spark and vitality.
The B-side is a odd choice for what would seem like a party music A-side, a broken hearted ballad. Taken out of context, it works a lot better.
Even though getting the light and dark sides of R'N'R on one single seems like a good idea, it comes off a bit weird...but who cares, right?
