Who is that?


Let's not leave out the 1963 R&B-flavored version by Big Dee Irwin (with Little Eva).

from The World Of Marion-Net E-Zines

The Pastels called it quits in 1959.

Lead singer DiFosco Irvin decided to go out on his own as a performer and writer. Using the name Dee Irwin, and then Big Dee Irwin, he recorded for a number of labels in the early sixties ... He finally found the big time once again in 1963 with one of the more infectious records of the era, his version of the Bing Crosby hit standard of the 1940s Swinging On A Star with Little Eva (Locomotion) on backing vocals. The mid tempo rocking take of Bing's Oscar winning song from Going My Way -- originally recorded with the Williams Brothers (including future star Andy) -- was a big seller in the pre-Beatle sixties. This hit led to a number of later records ... None did very much on the charts and Irwin remained in the business with writing, producing, and publishing for many years. He passed away in 1995.

Would you like to swing on a star?

Carry moonbeams home in a jar?

I love that song.

I have been looking for this song for ages. Two days ago I even googled hard and couldn´t find a clue... I remembered this from when I was a child and I had to ask my mother about it... she knew it was Bing Crosby and remembered part of the lyrics, so I decided I would look for it today.

So Jr and Bazooka, thanks for receiving my telepathic message!!!! And Cosgirl, thanks for the idea!!! :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
