    That would be their only nationally-charting single, putting them into the books as bona-fide One Hit Wonders since neither of these two 1959 follow-ups could again dent the charts:  "Everywhere You Go" b/w" Love Me Tonight" (Swan 4026) and "Goodbye Fifties, Hello Sixties" b/w "You Call Everybody Darlin'" (Swan 4045).
