Who Put The Bomp (In The Bomp Ba Bomp Ba Bomp)

Music by Barry Mann

"Who Put the Bomp (in the Bomp, Bomp, Bomp)" is a doo-wop style hit song from 1961 co-written (with Gerry Goffin) and recorded by Barry Mann. He was backed up by the Halos, who had previously backed Curtis Lee on "Pretty Little Angel Eyes". The song was originally released as a single on the ABC-Paramount label. In this song, Mann sings about the frequent use of nonsense lyrics in doo-wop music, and how his girl fell in love with him after listening to several such songs. Examples of the type of song referred to include the Marcels' version of "Blue Moon" (in which they sing "Bomp bomp ba bomp, ba bomp ba bomp bomp" and "dip-de-dip-de-dip")[2] and the Edsels' "Rama-Lama-Ding-Dong", both of which charted earlier the same year.[3] The spoken part is a reference to the song "Little Darlin'" by the Diamonds. "Boogidy shoo" can be found in the lyrics to "Pony Time" by Chubby Checker, released earlier that year.

Various Arrangers : Close Harmony Fun

Its always fun to sing in close harmony so let's be sure to also sing some really fun songs! Ricky Nelson's 1960's hit "Hello Mary Lou" is a natural for the tight harmony found in this well-crafted barbershop version. Thie Billy Joel hit "The Longest Time" from 1983 is still a favorite with audiences and singers. This Barbershop arrangement will be the hit of your show! The humorous doo-wop hit "Who Put The Bomp (In The Bomp Ba Bomp Ba Bomp)" from 1961 is arranged by the masterful Aaron Dale and is a treat for any quartet to sing. "Bohemian Rhapsody" - This arrangement is an absolute winner! Deke has the wonderful talent of creating arrangements that beginning quartets can sing while simultaneously being very rewarding for more experienced singers.

Ac Rock : Out Of The Box : 00  1 CD

Ac Rock : Out Of The Box

"Box" is the fourth excellent CD by all-male Chicago quartet Ac Rock (pronounced Ak-Rock), who are into a cappella Rock n' Roll, and just keep getting better at singing and arranging it! Paul, JD, Mark & Chris share solos on these 14 songs (actually 18, considering the final cut, "Best of Doo-Wop" includes "Duke of Earl," "The Book of Love," "Get A Job" and the Harmony Sweeps anthem "Goodnight, Sweetheart, Goodnight"). Just listen to cut #9, "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" (before a live audience at an elementary school in Wilmington, IL) if you want to see how much these guys (a) love their work, and (b) have big fun in concert. It's hard to pick favorites here, but "Who Put The Bomp," Brian Wilson's "Little Deuce Coupe," the Drifters' "Under The Boardwalk," Maurice White's "Shining Star," Hanson's "MMMBop," and James Brown's "I Got You (I Feel Good)" (which segues into a short, surreal sample of Strauss' "Blue Danube"), and a nice original by Mark, "Get Out The Way" will do for starters. See these guys live if you can, and get a sweet taste of their good stuff on "Out of the Box!". Then, after you've listened, put Out Of The Box in your computer (PC or Mac) and check out the amazing Enhanced Content: the Ac Rock Concentration game, The Ac Rock Sound Machine, a QuickTime Virtual Reality walkaround of the AcRock sculpture, and interactive bios for all of the guys. A free multi-media bonus that appeals to all ages!

Songlist: Shining Star, Absolutely Right, Happy Together, Who Put The Bomp (In The Bomp Ba Bomp Ba Bomp), Under the Boardwalk, I Got You (I Feel Good), (So Nice) Blue Danube, Get Out the Way, The Lion Sleeps Tonight, Little Deuce Coupe, Pretty Little Angel Eyes, MMMBop, So Fine, Duke of Earl, Book of Love, Get A Job, Goodnight

Brylcream : Street Corner Bop

Pull up a street corner and enjoy the tight, sweet harmonies of Brylcream, from Naples, Florida, which is John 'Wopp' Mina, Richie Beattie, Tom 'Cool-T' Welter, 'Billy D' Louth, and Randy 'Rep' Porter. All covers, several nicely arranged by John Mina. Some favorites: 'Trickle, Trickle,' 'Duke of Earl,' 'Bring It On Home,' 'Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow,' 'Silhouettes,' 'All Shook Up,' 'In The Still of the Night,' and 'Gloria.' The obligatory warning for purists: about half of the songs are accompanied by the 'Lords of Cool.' But make no mistake, Brylcream sings them slick, smooth & creamy, and a 'Little Dab' didn't do us - we want more!

Songlist: Dr. Doo Wop Album Intro, Trickle, Trickle, Duke of Earl, Lords of Cool Intro, Morse Code of Love, Little Darlin, The Wanderer, Bring it on Home, Another Saturday Night, Will You Love Me Tomorrow?, Who Put The Bomp (In The Bomp Ba Bomp Ba Bomp), Silouettes Intro (group), Silhouettes, All Shook Up, Ready to Go Intro, So In Love, Happy Days, In the Still of the Night, Gloria - Rich Beattie, Little Star, Mary's Boy Child

Heebee-jeebees : Surgical Strike : 00  1 CD

Heebee-jeebees : Surgical Strike

Canada's favorite all-male humorous a cappella quartet returns, dressed in surgical scrubs and having no qualms about suturing a "My Favorite Things" sample to a manic cover of "What I Like About You," the already silly "Guitarzan" gets sillier, a live crowd goes nuts on "Charlie On The MTA" and "Who Put the Bomp." There are spirited covers of "I Feel Fine" (with faux horns to die for), "Man of Constant Sorrow" (with a surprise sample of "Kumbaya"), "Walkin' On Sunshine," and the Monkees' "I'm a Believer" Also very funny are "Be My Yoko Ono" and the foot-tapping "Does Your Mother Know." "Surgical Strike" joins a slew of excellent Heebees CDs in our catalog: "Xmas Nuts," "Heebee Jeebee TV," "Falalalala," "Waiting Under The Mistletoe" and "Hurry Up and Wait." These guys have about as much fun, on stage and in the recording studio, as any a cappella group we've heard, and so do we!

Songlist: What I Like About You, Guitarzan, Charlie On the MTA, Be My Yoko Ono, Does Your Mother Know, I Feel Fine, Man of Constant Sorrow, Who Put The Bomp (In The Bomp Ba Bomp Ba Bomp), Walkin' On Sunshine, I'm A Believer

The Real Group : Debut : 00  1 CD : 001

The Real Group : Debut

This album is the first by The Real Group (recorded in 1987) as you might suspect from the title. It was recorded with two microphones straight to a two-track tape deck with no mix down. Amazing! They are already so good you won't realize that fact by the most critical listening. What dynamic balance! The original release was a vinyl edition of 2500. In 1995 that early recording was rereleased on cd and given the appropriate title, Debut. Of the thirteen tunes, three are sung in Swedish, while the rest are the types of familiar covers that we've come to expect, "All Of Me," "Misty," "Li'l Darlin'," "Night And Day," "As Time Goes By," "My Romance" and "Who Put The Bomp," among others. It's a must for anyone who is following the career of this extraordinary group.

Songlist: All of Me, Misty, Joy Spring, Coffee Calls For A Cigarette, Medgon Knsliga Fr Grnt, Blues For Alice, Li'l Darlin, Night and Day, As Time Goes By, Båtlåt, My Romance, Vårsång, Who Put The Bomp (In The Bomp Ba Bomp Ba Bomp)
