Wake Up Little Susie
Composer: Felice Bryant / Boudleaux Bryant

Performed by the Grateful Dead in acoustic sets in 1970 with Weir and Garcia sharing lead vocals.

After the Everly Brothers initial success with Bye Bye Love the Bryants were asked to write another 'Bye Bye Love'. This was the result. Recorded by the Everly Brothers on 16th August 1957 and released in September 1957 with Maybe Tomorrow on the flip side. The lyrics were 'toned down' before the Everly Brothers recorded the song but it was still banned on some radio stations in the US. The song reached #1 in the Billboard pop charts.
