FlinterFile: The Honeycombs- Have I The Right?


In 1964, the Honeycombs scored a big hit with their debut. The song was produced by the famous Joe Meek, and written by Ken Howard and Alan Blaikley. They wrote more hits, for artists like Petula Clark and Elvis Presley. Their drummer (a woman, named Honey Lantree), worked at a hairdresser.

It was a number 1 hit in the UK and a number 5 hit in the US. Enjoy
