The vocal riff I grew up singing is "sha da da da," not "sha na na na," as the retro doo-wop group of that name would have us believe. But it's not that simple. Listening over and over again to the version on Blowing The Fuse - which resolves individual voices better than any other version - I can hear one of the background vocalists singing "sha na na na" at least some of the time. The "sha da da da" singer is louder and more prominent. I have to work hard to hear the other singer. But I no longer think the "sha na na na" crowd is crazy - just wrong!
