Mony Mony by Tommy James and the Shondells was a UK number 1 hit on Wednesday, July 31, 1968 spending 3 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. Two versions were put together to form the song. The part that goes, 'I love you Mony, Mo Mo Mony...' was Bobby Bloom, who was also working for Roulette Records (Bloom sang "Montego Bay," which was a hit in 1970). The rest of it was written by James with producers Bo Gentry and Ritchie Cordell. When they were recording this, it was considered a throwaway B-side. They had no idea it would become a huge hit.
