The Chordettes, had a #1 hit with Mr. Sandman in 1954 and four years later recorded Lollipop, the penultimate girl-group hit from the late 50s. The Chordettes’ infectious full round-like arrangement with its ‘lollypop, lollypop, oh, lolly, lolly, lolly, lollypop’ also included a finger-in-the-mouth pop. It delighted audiences all spring and summer in 1958 The Fontane Sisters had a similar ‘do do wah, do do wah’ hit in 1954 with Hearts of Stone.
Quintessential Fifties lyric:
"I call me baby lollipop, tell you why, his kiss is sweeter than an apple pie"
