Music Video: Santo and Johnny – Sleepwalk

Santo and Johnny Sleepwalk

A hoax on the Internet yesterday brought this record to mind.  Sleepwalk was originally recorded by Santo and Johnny Farina under the name Santo & Johnny back in 1959.  The two brothers were originally from Brooklyn.  This record is one of a number of rock n roll instrumentals, which were popular in the late 50s and early 60s.  This song has been in movies, and you may know it as one of the closing songs used by Vin Scelsa on his WFUV show, Idiots Delight.  The photo above is of the original single.
