I’m Happy, Too

The Four Dates recorded “I’m Happy” and “Eloise” in 1957 for Chancellor Records—the song reached #87 on Billboard’s Hot Top 100 for a week in early 1958. Before my time, as that saying goes (I’d barely graduated from training wheels on my Schwinn), but I was happy to find the 45 sitting on a vintage record player in a shop along Route 66. Hit PLAY on the YouTube video for a lively sample of Doo-wop.
