This one is "Doo Wah Diddy Diddy," originally performed by Manfred Mann, named afterv the keyboardist for this five-person Brit band back in the mid-1960's:

I haven't been able to find the Exciters' version, but these three are good versions of the same song in entirely different formats. Okay, please listen to each, and cast your vote as to which version is the best:
1. The Manfred Mann version ______
2. The Dolly Dots version ______
3. The "Stripes" version ______
Also, visit other Battle of the Band sites, enjoy the music, and cast your votes. I can assure you that this is less painful than voting in your recent primary.
