Warren Zevon - Bad Luck Streak in Dancing School album artwork 11:39pm Warren Zevon A Certain Girl Bad Luck Streak in Dancing School (Asylum)
Track Notes: A Certain Girl was written by Allen Toussaint, with the credit listed under his pen name Naomi Neville. New Orleans R&B singer Ernie K-Doe recorded it in 1961. Minit Records released the song as the B-side of "I Cried My Last Tear". The single became a double-sided hit on Billboard magazine's Hot 100 record chart, with "A Certain Girl" reaching number 71 (and "I Cried My Last Tear" number 69) during on December 4, 1961.[1] Neither song appeared on Billboard's Hot R&B sides chart. Many musicians have recorded versions of the song. I heard a killer version by the Yardbirds the other day, but still like Zevon's version better. Add to Collection
