BUCKET T

Surfer and Dragster sounds were quite popular in the early and mid 1960’s, epitomised by the Beach Boys, Jan and Dean, and instrumentalists like the Surfaris and the Venturers.

Ronnie and the Daytonas were played sometimes at the Twisted Wheel. But I once heard Roger Eagle tell someone requesting Bucket T (Dave Lomas later to be a DJ at The Blue Note) to piss off – he wasn’t playing anymore Dragster crap.

However, it still got played a few days later when Roger had cooled off, as lots of dancers liked it and often sang out the lyrics.

Little GTO – Song lyrics – Ronnie and The Daytonas

Little GTO, you’re really lookin’ fine
Three deuces and a four-speed and a 389
Listen to her tachin’ up now, listen to her why-ee-eye-ine
C’mon and turn it on, wind it up, blow it out GTO

Wa-wa, wa, wa, wa, wa, wa, wa
Wa-wa, wa, wa, wa, wa, wa, wa
( ‘Yeah, yeah, little GTO’ background)
Wa-wa wa, wa, wa, wa, wa, wa

You oughta see her on a road course or a quarter mile
This little modified Pon-Pon has got plenty of style
She beats the gassers and the rail jobs, really drives ’em why-ee-eye-ild
C’mon and turn it on, wind it up, blow it out GTO

Gonna save all my money, turnin’ it on, blowin’ it out, and buy a GTO
turnin’ it on, blowin’ it out..
Get a helmet and a roll bar
