‘Mony Mony.’

Wow. Almost 49, and I’m just now realizing that this is a cover by Billy Idol. Go figure.

Mony Mony, Billy Idol

      Yep. Tommy James and the (replacement) Shondells.
      .
      The story is that young Tommy and a group of friends formed The Shondells .. they played gigs around to Chicago, got sorta local-popular on their cover of Hanky-Panky, but didn’t hit it big, and broke up.
      .
      Fast forward a couple years and suddenly Hanky-Panky is getting east coast play, and the radio and record folks track down Tommy .. who conveniently can’t find any of the original Shondells ..
      .
      Still, good song, solid musician, and last I checked still touring.
      .
