Hal and Herb Kalin’s only UK hit is a breezy little thing, floor-friendly and with enough quirky touches to suggest that something a bit more demented is trying to break the pop surface. It never quite does – the castanets are mere emphasis, never fiery; the backing vocals nudge at the edges of wackiness but then hold back. Enjoyable but minor – a sound jiving its way towards the generic.
