COAST TO COAST "DO THE HUCKLEBUCK" (1981) ON TOP OF THE POPS

Okay, so this is a catchy tune, but it's hardly an 80s classic is it? I mean, it's even cheesier than cheddar!  This actually reached No.3 in the UK, and was originally released by Irish Showband, Brendan Bowyer & The Royal Showband - from Waterford - in the early 1960's.

The Rockabilly band's music career was short-lived and they only released one album (under the Polydor label) entitled Coastin'. However, they were spared from being a one hit wonder as the follow-up single - a cover of Brenda Lee's Let's Jump The Broomstick - reach #28 in June 1981.
