1. Daddy’s Home, in 1961. The song would have reached No. 1 on the chart but was kept from the top spot by Ricky Nelson’s Travelin’ Man.

2. The Monotones, in 1958. They were mentioned in American Pie, by Don McLean, but never had another major hit. The 1991 film Book Of Love used the song in its soundtrack, done by Bo Diddley and Ben E. King.
