Pop Archaeology: "Do Wha Diddy Diddy" - Manfred Mann

The hit songwriting team of Jeff Barry and Ellie Greenwich penned”Do Wah Diddy Diddy” in 1963, as “Do-Wah-Diddy”, for The Exciters but it didn’t hit the top of the charts until a year later when Brit-Pop Rockers (and R&B Band) Manfred Mann recorded it. 106 more words
