On this day in music history: April 24, 1959 - “There Goes My Baby” by The Drifters is released. Written by Benjamin Nelson (Ben E. King), Lover Patterson, George Treadwell, Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, it is the first single featuring the second incarnation of the legendary R&B/doo-wop vocal group. The transition in group personnel takes place when The Drifters manager George Treadwell (former husband and manager of jazz singer Sarah Vaughan) fires the remaining original members after clashes over money and musical direction. Treadwell replaces them with a group of singers formerly known as The 5 Crowns, drafting them to become the new line up of The Drifters. For their first release as The Drifters, they record “There Goes My Baby” with the songwriting and production team of Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller. The track is recorded on March 6, 1959 at Atlantic Studios in New York City, marking the first appearance of new lead singer Ben E. King. Leiber and Stoller’s groundbreaking use of strings and other orchestral instruments changes the face of R&B and pop music, going on to influence many songwriters and producers in the years that follow. Producer and songwriter Phil Spector sites the song as a major influence for his “Wall Of Sound” production technique. “There Goes My Baby” spends one week at #1 on the Billboard R&B singles chart on July 27, 1959, peaking at #2 on the Hot 100 on August 17, 1959, and is inducted into the Grammy Hall Of Fame in 1998.

I know there are two (2) more Slytherins but I couldn’t see any of them in any other house so. Fight me. The palm of the most difficult character to Sort goes to my baby Armin Arlert who I almost put in Gryffindor (he’s the bravest of them all according to Mikasa and also did you see how he just *clutches his heart* with that mad glistening in his eyes and also his indestructible hopefulness are both very Ravenclaw and very Gryffindor to me but his realistic and collected side won him the Ravenclaw ticket).
