Song of the day: The Shangri-Las- The Leader Of The Pack
In 1964, a song produced by George Morton was released. This song would be a golden oldie or evergreen, and is a typical example of a teenage tragedy song. The vocals were recorded in a hotel in Manhattan, the instrumentals were already recorded and would later be added. About the sound of the motorcycle, the sources vary: one says one was driven through the hotel to record the sound, though others say it was taken from the effectsroom. The BBC first refused to play the song, but still it would chart on number 11 in the UK. Enjoy
