The Silhouettes

The Rays did Silhouettes but The Silhouettes didn’t do Rays. Confusing. The Silhouettes were that most refined of 1 hit wonders, having had exactly 1 hit, and having that hit be number 1. They don’t even seem to have hit the R&B charts again. My copy of this goes back a long way; it’s another find from the Echoes Of A Rock Era collection.

The Silhouettes:

Get A Job – The Yakety Yak kid grows up. For some reason this song keeps playing in my head these days. Number 1 in the winter of 1958. The Mills Brothers did a cover, and Sha Na Na revived it, whence they derived their name.
