"Come Go with Me" is a song written by C. E. Quick (aka Clarence Quick), an original member of the American doo-wop vocal group The Del-Vikings. The song was originally recorded by The Del-Vikings in 1956 and was released on Fee Bee Records. When the group signed with Dot Records in 1957, the song became a hit, peaking at #4 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and becoming the group's highest-charting song. The song was later featured in the films American Graffiti (1973) Stand by Me (1986) and Joe Versus the Volcano (1990).
Dion covered a version of the song on his 1962 album, Lovers Who Wander, reaching #48 on The Billboard Hot 100 in 1963.
"Come Go with Me" was later covered by the American rock band The Beach Boys and was included on their 1978 album, M.I.U. Album. Although not released as a single at the time, the song was included on a Beach Boys compilation album, Ten Years of Harmony, in 1981. This version was then released as a single to promote the compilation album, and it then rose to #18 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in January 1982. When that compilation was reissued on CD, an alternative take of the song was used.
Israeli artist Danny Sanderson sings a Hebrew a capella version of the song entitled Bo'ee Motek/בואי מותק (Come, my Darling); this was released on his 1984 album חף מפשע (Not Guilty), on the CBS International label.
In 2004, Rolling Stone magazine ranked the song #441 on its list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. The song was incorrectly listed as having reached #5 on the charts by Rolling Stone. It peaked at #4 in 1957. File Hashes
