The perfect pop song (1)

A never-ending quest to find the perfect pop song starts here with something called The Saturday Night Beechnut Show and Connie Francis’s 1959 hit “Lipstick On Your Collar”. All truly great songs feature the line: “Were you smooching my best friend / Guess the answer’s yes” and all truly great YouTube videos have hot pop stars recast as nervy secretaries getting on down at the Christmas party.

Francis is still (as of November 2011) still performing. According to wiki, a Welsh version entitled “Lipstic ar dy Goler” was recorded by Angharad Davies in 1989, and included on her album “Y Ferch o’r Filltir Sgwâr”. I have to find this.
