I have to say these are not my personal favorites, but they are my top recommended songs for listeners. So lets call this "Top 10 Doo Wop Recommendations"

1."16 Candles," The Crests
November 1958
American musics quinessential coming of age favorite, -- originally titled "21 Candles" -- Timeless after all these years.Later inspired a Box Office Hit Movie in the Eighties with the same title


2."At The Hop," Danny and the Juniors
November 1957
Originally conceived by the songwriter as "Do The Bop," Dick Clark convinced Danny and the Juniors to rename this song and the rest is history.
