Johnnie & Joe

I thought they were the 50s version of Sam & Dave, until I looked them up on YouTube, and now I realize that Johnnie was a girl. Perhaps they were the 50s version of Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell.

Johnnie & Joe:

Over The Mountain; Across The Sea – There is a girl somewhere in this world. The idea is that we have our intended. And the girl shows up at the end. Seriously. Here I am she says. And what a voice she has, like Minnie Mouse on steroids. That’s where Johnnie makes her presence heard. Until then she seems just to hum in the background, leaving Joe to do all the hard work. From the summer of 1957, their only hit. It found its way back into the pop chart in 1960, and Bobby Vinton revived it in 1963
