A number 5 US R&B hit in 1955. The name of the group The Spiders was the inspiration for the name of Buddy Holly's group, The Crickets. Well, it was unless you believe the story of the insect that was chirping along with Buddy and his group during a recording session one day in Norman Petty's studio. Anyway, The Beatles (remember them?), continued the tradition, and a few more insecty groups: The Cockroaches (Liverpool, early 1960s), The Boll Weevils (Birmingham, early 1960s) and Adam and The Ants, who at least enjoyed some recording success in the 1980s.
Elvis recorded two different songs with this title; see the next entry.
