Song of the day: Barry Mann- Who Put The Bomp

barry mann who put the bomp

In 1961, Barry Mann and Gerry Goffin, who also wrote The Loco-Motion, wrote the song ‘Who Put The Bomp’. The song was about the nonsense of the Doo-Wop lyrics and the girlfriend of Barry, who fell in love with him after hearing several of these songs. The song perfectly fits the idea of the doo-wop songs, and became a classic among those. In the US, it would be a hit, reaching number 7 as the highest. The UK only knows the cover version, which charted at number 21 there. Enjoy
