Vintage Sunday: The Del Vikings

I’ve been listening to the Del Vikings like crazy over the last few weeks – even when my iPod is on shuffle, I basically just wait for more Del Vikings to come on. They’re the absolute kings of doo-wop, and I dare you to find a more charming and cheerful music. I double-dog-dare you not to dance, at least a little chair dancing, while you listen to their wonderful version of “A Sunday Kind of Love” from 1957.

By the way: the Del Vikings are also awesome for being formed in my hometown, Pittsburgh, PA, and for being one of the first racially integrated music groups. Badass.
