Stay: Maurice Williams And The Zodiacs



As summer winds down on Monday,  a voice behind you pleads, Stay…just a little bit longer.

Maurice WIlliams, who wrote the song at age fifteen and sings lead on the shortest #1 pop song on record, said in an interview that they deliberately kept the song short so that it would get more radio play. They figured that the DJs would use it as a sign off before a commercial break if it was short enough. They were right.

That’s Henry “Shane” Gaston on the falsetto.
