An (Unusually) Early Clue to the New Direction

Off to New York City for a mysterious assignation. In the meantime, from 1963, here's less whitebread than I remembered teen heart throbs Nino Tempo and April Stevens with a kinda cute cover of Bruce Chanel's "Hey Baby."



As is customary, a coveted PowerPop No-Prize will be awarded to the first reader who divines the clip's relevance to Friday's Weekend Listomania.

Grudging hint: The song itself has nothing to do with it.

Shameless blogwhore: My arch love letter to Zooey Deschanel can be found over at today's Box Office. Leave a comment and help get me in good with management if you're of a mind to.

Longest song titles? -- e.g., "I've Been Carrying a Torch for You So Long That I Burned a Great Big Hole In My Heart" (the B-side of April and Nino's "Deep Purple").

All very good guesses but no.

Okay, here's another hint.

It has something to do with "Dee Purple."
