New Oldies - Teenagers In Love by Woody Thorne

When you first hear this song, it might sound like one of those really bad American Idol auditions to you. But if you're like most people, it'll grow on you very quickly. Here's the thing: Nobody knows who this cat was. Now, if you happen to know, PLEASE tell me! In fact, if you know ANY of these people, let me know. They might be able to tell us something about Woody Thorne. First, there's the guy who wrote the song, William Rosenbauer. Then there are the producers, Rene Hall and Nat Goodman. Finally, there's Gene Norman, owner of GNP Crescendo Records (the GN in GNP), who released Teenagers In Love. Gene was a dee jay on KFWB in Los Angeles in 1947. I have serious doubts that any of these folks are still alive today, but as Chuck Berry once said, you never can tell. Please tell ME what you think of this New Oldie. You can hear LOTS of New Oldies on MusicMaster Oldies.



Just in case you feel like singing along...

Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh

A boy, a girl, in love, by choice,
A date, a dance, that made, this song.

Bom, bom, bom, bom
Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh

When they walk, down the street, hands together,
With each wish, with each hope, to be together,
You know, you know, they're just two teenagers in love.

Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh

With each vow, with each laugh, meant for each other,
With each hug, with each kiss, to last forever,
You know, you know, they're just two teenagers in love.

Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh

Say, say
Their love was meant to be 'cause,
Love, love,
That's all they need cause only,
Love, love,
That's what's, in their hearts.

Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
Bom, bom, bom, bom
Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh

With each vow, with each laugh, meant for each other,
With each hug, with each kiss, to last forever,
You know, you know, they're just two teenagers in love.

Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh

  1. I have that record for a few decades in my collection now. Was always a favourite. Never heard from it again...until in 1994 in the Pulp fiction movie. When John Travolta and Uma Thurman are in the Diner "Jack Rabbit Slim's" at one point you can hear it in the background very very dim. Sadly it didn't make the soundtrack.
    Nice music blog you have.
