Clap Your Hands b/w Daddy Said – The Beau Marks (Shad Records, 1959)

Here is one for the scratchy record fans. The Beau-Marks had a #1 hit on the Canadian charts with Clap Your Hands. A rock-a-billy bopper, this tune is just right for anyone in rolled up Levi’s or thrift store cardigans.

“you got the beat / you’re in the groove / now grab your girl / and start to move”

The b-side is just as good. A Bill Haley style piano part really puts the frosting on the cake. You’d be wise to grab these tracks for your next shin dig, Daddy-o.

“my daddy was right when he said / you better be careful / that woman is a devil in disguise”
