    New original songs by THE FABULOUS DUDES, written and produced in 1950s and 1960s group-harmony (doo-wop) styles. Had they come out "at the right time," The Fabulous Dudes think these songs would have been hits. Never ones to give up the dream, we're extending the fun, excitement and beauty of that music into the present with authentic yet creative new tracks: lush ballads, rock & roll, even a little rockabilly. We DO make them like they used to!!

about

New original songs by THE FABULOUS DUDES, written and produced in 1950s and 1960s group-harmony (doo-wop) styles. Had these songs come out in the '50s and early '60s, The Fabulous Dudes think they would have been hits then. We're extending the fun, excitement and beauty of that music into the present with authentic and creative new tracks: lush ballads, rock & roll, even a little rockabilly. Good taste is timeless; we DO make them like they used to!!

Track Name: The Fabulous Dudes
Six teenagers coasting through high school – we thought we were so cool,
Singing doo-wops in the halls, perfecting the moves of The Fabulous Dudes.

Sixteen dances and dozens of parties put our music where our heart is.
We wanted to record the rhythm ‘n’ blues of The Fabulous Dudes.

Success came overnight; it was a thrill, it was a fright.
We did a package tour from shore to shining shore.
We lived the fantasy that rock ‘n’ roll should be life in perfect harmony

Six more singles and a couple of long plays – we were kings of the airwaves,
Living in style; the kids would go wild for The Fabulous Dudes

The first couple were hits, they made it up the charts,
But they slicked us up a bit and the records missed their mark
And then the music changed, and nothing was the same; we faded as fast as we came.

Sixteen agents and managers later, we know that it’s greater
To sing the way we feel. The harmony still rules for The Fabulous Dudes!

Track Name: Ding Dong Darling
Ding dong darling
I really love you so
Ding Dong darling
I'll never let you go....
Track Name: Bette Blue Moon (slow)
Take the moment, reach for the stars
Let this evening be exclusively ours
For our parting will come too soon
Bette Blue Moon (Bette Blue Moon)

In your life, please let me play a part
Hold the feelings so deep in your heart
Warm summer evenings parked by the dunes with
Bette Blue Moon (Bette Blue Moon)

From out of nowhere you came into my life
Lover from a distant past
Have you returned for a brief but sweet affair
Or do you think it will last?

Take the moment, hold each other tight
Thrill to the tenderness till we must say goodnight
And I’ll be waiting for you to come back soon
Bette Blue Moon (Bette Blue Moon)

Have you returned for a brief but sweet affair
Or do you think it will last?

Take the moment, hold each other tight
Thrill to the tenderness till we must say goodnight
And I’ll be waiting for you to come back soon
Bette Blue Moon (Bette Blue Moon)

Track Name: Your Love
Your love
Goes with me always
In big and in small ways
So warm and so true

Your love
Is so satisfying
And I am trying
To be worthy of you

Everything I am
Everything that I do
Is so much better than
If I didn’t have you
It is true

Your love
Is warm as the sunshine
And darling, you’re all mine
And I belong to you

Everything I have
Everything that I need
Is more wonderful
‘Cause of you loving me
Can’t you see

Track Name: Christmas Time Is Coming
Christmastime is coming, but you’re going
away from me. Oh, baby,
can’t you see just how lonely
I will be?

Even though I’m knowing that you’re going and
it must be, I guess I’ll have to
light my tree with just myself for
company.

Although this season finds us apart, and the
winter chill is so cold,
I’ll keep this warm feeling right here in my heart
Till you’re in my arms to hold.

Christmastime is coming, and though you’re going,
I won’t grieve if you’ll promise to
be with me in time for
New Year’s Eve
