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

On my 16th birthday, 5-18-60, my mom went around through the kitchen to the living room where she had readied my '45' of 16 Candles on the Hi-Fi and started it playing. She brought my birthday cake into the dining room to the song and my heart skipped a beat. To this day it still skips a beat whenever I hear the song. ��❤️��

Whenever I hear Johnny Maestro sing I picture myself back at home, in East Harlem , NY. During those hot summer nights when it was too hot to be upstairs. You'd hear his songs playing in the candystores jukeboxes! My big brother and sister would be hanging out with their pals, and I'd be playing hopscotch, or Black Crow! My most spectacular memories, and he just takes me back !!!!! You should play more of his music, now that we're coming into hot summer nights!

DONT READ THIS. YOU WILL BE KISSED ON THE NEAREST POSSIBLE FRIDAY BY THE LOVE IF YOUR LIFE. TOMORROW WILL BE THE BEST DAY OF YOR LIFE. NOW YOU'VE STARTED READING THIS. DON'T STOP THIS IS SO FREAKY. But if you read this and ignore it, then you will have very bad luck PUT THIS ON 15 SONGS IN 143 MINUTES.
