Awful Cover Songs: Da Doo Run Run by Shawn Cassidy
Often dubbed as the “Justin Bieber” of the 70s what teenage girl didn’t have a crush on Shawn Cassidy? This girl didn’t and that’s the truth! Sure he had a decent singing voice but not enough talent to sustain anything long term.
Adorable? From the eyes of a 12 year old girl, maybe. Personally I would chalk him up to one of the “cliche” here today gone tomorrow teenage heart throbs whose poster made the wall of millions of teenage girl bedrooms but had no real impact on music at all. Another Leif Garret, another Scott Baio but doesn’t even reach the likes of Bieber.

The original song is a classic “girl group” doo wop song that left an indelible mark on rock n roll history. That simple fact makes it hard to listen to this song with a straight face. Sorry Shawn. No Sale!
