Shu Bop

Dion Francis DiMucci (born July 18, 1939), better known simply as Dion, is an American singer, songwriter and guitarist. His music has incorporated elements of doo-wop, pop, rock, R&B, folk and blues. Initially as the lead singer of Dion and the Belmonts, and then during his solo career, Dion was one of the most popular American rock and roll performers of the pre-British Invasion era. He had 39 Top 40 hits in the late 1950s and early 1960s as a solo performer, or with the Belmonts and the Del-Satins. He is best remembered for the singles "Runaround Sue", "The Wanderer", "Ruby Baby" and "Lovers Who Wander", among other hits. Their initial hit was followed by "No One Knows" and "Don't Pity Me", which also charted the Billboard Top 100. Dion was a shy guy growing up and wrote this song about a girl he saw and wanted to meet, but didn't know how. Shu Bop is an obscure recording as you can see Dion had to read the lyrics as he doesn't usually preform this song.
