The music was written by Wardell Gray, and the lyrics penned after his death by Lambert, Hendricks and Ross in the late 1950s. Many artists, including the famous Joni Mitchell, performed a cover version of this song.

Originally, Hank Ballard and the Midnighters recorded it in 1959 (Hank also wrote it).

It was, however, made famous by Chubby Checker's version in 1960.
