Johnny Maestro & The Crests

One of the most successful integrated doo wop groups, the Crests waxed the classic ballad "16 Candles" in 1959. Formed in 1956, they began recording the next year for Joyce, where they inched onto the pop lists with "Sweetest One." Moving to the brand-new Coed logo, Johnny Maestro's (b. May 7, 1939) warm tenor made "16 Candles" a national smash, and pop/R&B hybrids like "The Angels Listened In" and "Step by Step" also did well. Maestro went solo in 1960, scoring the next year with "Model Girl" on Coed, while the Crests attempted to survive on their own. Maestro eventually reclaimed stardom as leader of Brooklyn Bridge, an 11-piece aggregation that hit with "Worst That Could Happen" in 1968. ~ Bill Dahl, Rovi

Amazing song!!
Family guy
Hey Dominick Ur so right... The Rays by far had a better cut!!
This song is very nice. I love J.M. . He has such a beautiful voice.
Love his music.
The Rays version was much better.
At least singers in the 50s & 60's could carry a tune.
Onnregman- not certain the music of our youth was really any better than what kids listen to today - I do believe our age group does believe it is because it takes our minds back to a much more innocent and peaceful period of our lives !

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you have started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in the next 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this is so scary because it actually works
RIP Johnny. You gave your all to the very end. We will miss your wonderful voice.

Love the Crests . Interesting how Rock and Roll did so much for integration before even MLK . Doo Wop is truly color blind .
Sgale2010 and greencarew y'all aren't along I'm 14 and I love it!
I LOVE THIS SONG <3 I always think of back to the futur though when I listen to it that's probable why I love it so much
I like the penguins version better
Earth Angel should have been recorded by the Crests almost as bad as the Crew Cuts BUT not as bad.
Wow!
a love song.

I can't say enough good about how wonderful this man was. I am 69 years old, yet every time I hear his music I get a lump in my throat from the wonderful memories of that era. R. I. P. J. M. You will missed...... . . . . . . . . . . , , ,
One of the best voices in the business. R.I.P. Johnny. We miss you.
