1963: Da Doo Ron Ron by The Crystals

Composed by Phil Spector, Jeff Barry and Ellie Greenwich. Recorded and released as a stand-alone single by American vocal group The Crystals. The song was composed over two days in Phil Spector’s office in New York. The title “Da Doo Ron Ron” was initially just nonsense syllables used as dummy lines to separate each stanza and chorus until proper lyrics could be written, but Phil Spector liked it so much that he kept it. The song was recorded at Gold Star Studios in Los Angeles, USA. Genres: Pop, R&B, Rock and Roll.
