Quickie TD-ish quiz whilst we wait for a TD to be posted

Post by RandyG » Mon Jun 04, 2012 10:43 pm

Given the surprising turnout for the 1960s music TD that I posted some weeks back, I'll have to consider running another one from the gobs of leftover questions when my schedule allows more time. For now, ponder on this question that I originally considered for the TD but discarded when I discovered that there were many more correct answers than I could have possibly imagined. In fact, I know of at least 55 answers now, a goodly number of which are well known, and I have little doubt that there are dozens more.

Name a Billboard Top 40 (or so) record/single from 1960's (+/- 2 years), in which a word in the title is repeated consecutively. If you know the artist, then list that as well. Nonsense words count and you can ignore punctuation. And note consecutive, so for example, The Newbeats' 1965 "Run, Baby Run" would not qualify, while if the song were "Run Run Baby" it would.

Let's limit it at first to 4 revealed answers per person; more than that in a spoiler if you must.

Too bad TPH doesn't play these, considering this is one of his apparent pet peeves, he'd clean up!

I really like it because the repeated word actually makes a semantic difference.

Dang, I knew there was a Beatles one to be found. "Long, Long, Long" wasn't a single, "Love, love me do" and "She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah" are lyrics whose repetitions aren't part of the respective titles, and "Good Morning Good Morning" and "She Said She Said" are nonconsecutive repetitions and non-singles to boot.

Also, it's another (and an actual song title) in which the repetition isn't merely repetitive.

Just checked; not a single. And my other Stones idea, while a hit, was not released until 1973: "Do Do Do Do Do (Heartbreaker)"
