Frankie Lymon was my father's best friend. But they never put my father in the movie about Frankie. So much for Hollywood's docu-drama accuracy.

Listening to this music, I'm a teenager again. My wife once criticized me for "living in the past" for loving this music. I then asked her what kind of music she liked and she replied Beethoven & Mozart and I replied "And I'm the guy living in the past???"

Beautiful song. These kids acted like true gentlemen. Even Frankie's facial expressions when singing this song really let up the stage. 2 or 3 of the Teenagers were of Puerto Rican descent. Glad to see diversity among amazing talent especially for that time period. RIP Frankie. God wanted you to sing for him in heaven so he decided to take you up with him.

I can't believe he wrote it himself at only 13. Now that's talent. Even I can't write a complete song as an adult nevermind when I was a kid.

To think these talented, witty young men were forced to drink from separate water fountains from whites, to use separate toilets and go to separate schools. Their talent and their spirit shined through. A shame that drugs took Frankie before his time. This song is classic.
