Great song PATTI - though, I do prefer the George Benson (later used to pen Bob Fosse's ALL THAT JAZZ): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ok__l1Acuwg

The original version by Mann & Weill was changed for the Drifters' recording with the collaboration of Leiber & Stoller. It is in their show SMOKEY JOE'S CAFE.

Trivia: A young Phil Spector played the distinctive lead guitar solo on The Drifters' recording.

Like Sergio, I love the George Benson version.
