Producer [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Snuff Garrett[/lastfm] pitched the song to [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Bobby Vee[/lastfm], who turned it down.  With what happened next you have to wonder if [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Gary Lewis[/lastfm]’ career would have taken off as it did if Bobby had sad yes.  All the pieces fell into place, including a shot on the Ed Sullivan Show Gary’s dad [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Jerry Lewis[/lastfm] arranged.  And Gary has never let Bobby Vee forget the mistake he made.
