I’m on record saying that the Crystals Da Doo Ron Ron is Rock’s Greatest Song.
Maybe I need to elaborate. A perfect rock song needs to be simple, needs to be about sex, needs to allude to sex, needs to sustain the big beat.
What I like about the Crystals’ version is the epic sound, courtesy of Phil Spector’s Wall of Sound.
What I love about the Searcher’s version is that the play and sexual innuendo persist, I think because that’s a part of the song.
