Starry Nightmoth and I (Gene Eric Mann) labored a few days on this tricky number. We gave it our best shot, but mucho kudos to Del Shannon’s keyboardist – his break rift was amazing! We settled for sort of faking our way through, which was still an effort of much practice and patience.

BTW, the Del Shannon version is in A minor/A – we transposed our version to E minor/E simply because I can’t “wa wa wa wa wonder” and “wai wai wai wia why” as high as teenage Del anymore.

The “Oboe” lead break in the song’s center is performed by Starry Nightmoth on her Yamaha E-313 keyboard. Please give her some kudos – she practice the rift for 3 days to make this song happen for us!
