One Hit Wonder Wednesday

Welcome again to another installation of One Hit Wonder Wednesday. Where we strive to bring you the best one hit wonder I can come up with in a few minutes thought. Well, actually, I came up with this one last week and luckily wrote it down so I would remember.

I don’t know when the first time was that I heard “The Shoop Shoop Song” but I do remember really liking it. It is a very simple and silly song, but it is very catchy and for Betty Everett in 1964 it became a number 6 hit in the US and her only solo top ten single (she hit #5 in a Duet with Jerry Butler with “Let it be Me“).

The full title of the song is actually “The Shoop Shoop Song (It’s in His Kiss)” and has been covered by a number of artists most notably Linda Ronstadt (in concert, on Saturday Night Live and also on the Muppet Show) and Cher (the movie Mermaids).

Here are versions by Cher and Linda Ronstadt.
