Great additions, Catfish! Forgot all about Party Doll which is a HUGE favorite...all 3 you added have the party sound I'm talking about. Thanks....and, hey, wait: I forgot "Rock Around the Clock."

Wild Billy's choice of Shout is terrific. Fits right in. But I think I'd pick Isley Brothers version. Probably showing my age here since I never saw Animal House. So looked up that version (which is great--almost a direct copy) and learned interesting tidbit: the band in Animal House (Otis Day and the Knights) was fictional but then went on to tour and release an album based on that scene in the movie.

The top two party songs in a poll of my high school Class of 1963 were "Twist & Shout" (Isley Brothers) and "Do You Love Me" (Contours). Both of them were still huge favorites my freshman year in college (1963-1964). I still love them both, although the Beatles' version of "Twist & Shout" may be my favorite these days.

I'm loving all these additions. I'll never forget the impact of "Do You Love Me?" in (I think) Spring, 1963. Wild and sexy!! But then how could I not have included "Louie, Louie."?? Talk about a PARTY!
