Do You Know/Remember Brian Hyland??

Dear Members,

Do you know Brian Hyland?? When I was a teenager, cute Brian was quite famous, teenagers around the world went crazy for his song "Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka Dot Bikini". Girls wanted to wear bikinis running on the beach all day long! But not me, my mom said NO..NO..NO! I settled with one piece yellow polka dot swimming suit.

Brian Hyland : Mini Biography

Date of Birth : 12 November, Brooklyn, New York City, New York, USA.
New York-born Brian Hyland had his first hit when he was 16 years old with the novelty song "Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka Dot Bikini", which went to #1 in 1960. Some minor hits followed over the next few years until he hit it big again in 1962 with the teenage lament "Sealed With a Kiss". A few years later he had another respectable hit with "The Joker Went Wild". In 1970 he and fellow rocker Del Shannon collaborated on Hyland's remake of an old hit by The Impressions, "Gypsy Woman", and it not only shot up to #3 on the pop charts but got him some respectable critical reviews, also. A few years later his old hit "Sealed With a Kiss" was re-released in Great Britain and cracked the Top Ten.
