gene-vincent-be-bop-a-lula

Welcome to February, Fifties February! This song originates from 1956, when Gene Vincent and his Blue Caps recorded the song! This song is credited to Gene Vincent and his manager, Bill Davis. Apparently, Gene Vincent wrote the song in a hospital. He wrote the tune, and the lyrics were written by Donald Graves. Bill Davis bought the lyrics for a low amount of money (sources vary) and credited himself. The song made it to number 16 in the UK and number 7 in the US! Enjoy
