Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear Lyrics: Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, turn around / Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, touch the ground / Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, jump up high / Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, touch the sky / Teddy. This is the story about how Theodore Roosevelt inspired the creation of the 'teddy bear'. Created for an elementary school classroom.
The Teddy Bears were an American pop music group. They were record producer Phil Spector's first vocal group.
Following graduation from Fairfax High School in Los Angeles, California, Phil Spector became obsessed with 'To Know Him Is to Love Him', a song he had written for his group, the Teddy Bears. After a hasty audition at Era Records, which offered to finance a studio session, the Teddy Bears – Phil Spector, Marshall Leib, Harvey Goldstein (who left the group early on), lead singer Annette Kleinbard, and last minute recruit, drummerSandy Nelson – recorded the song at Gold Star Studios at a cost of $75. Released on Era's Dorélabel in August 1958, it took two months before 'To Know Him Is to Love Him' began to get airplay.
It went on to become a global hit. The record stayed in the Billboard Hot 100 for 23 weeks, in the Top Ten for 11 of those weeks, and commanded the number 1 chart position for three weeks. It also reached number 2 in the UK Singles Chart. It sold over two and a half million copies, and was awarded a gold disc by the RIAA. At 19 years old, Spector had written, arranged, played, sung, and produced the best-selling record in the country. Although subsequent releases by the Teddy Bears on the Imperial label were well-recorded soft pop, they did not sell, and within a year of the debut, Spector disbanded the group. Their demise was hastened by Kleinbard being seriously injured in 1960 in a car accident.
Spector was not the only Teddy Bear who went on to a career after the group broke up. Harvey Goldstein became a certified public accountant. Annette Kleinbard continued to write and record songs, and changed her name to Carol Connors. Among her credits are the Rip Chords hit 'Hey Little Cobra', and the Academy Awards nominated Rockytheme song, 'Gonna Fly Now', co-written with Ayn Robbins. Leib joined the Hollywood Argyles, played guitar on some of Duane Eddy's records and produced material recorded by the Everly Brothers amongst others.
