The news of Ray Collins' passing reminded us of one of our favorite doo-wop love songs of all time. Please note, despite what the title says, this was written by Ray, not Frank:

A relaxed, amiable, unambitious guy with a golden voice who could sing it sweet or sarcastic and helped breathe life into the Mothers Of Invention. (In fact, he was the one who hired Zappa in the first place. Imagine: "I know this guitar player...")

Also: I must add this was the first song I ever learned to play on the piano.
