45 of Barry & The Tamerlanes "I Wonder What She's Doing Tonight"

Doo Wop

Barry and the Tamerlanes were a doo wop group from California that consisted of Barry De Vorzon, Terry Smith, and Bodie Chandler. In 1963, their single on Valiant Records “I Wonder What She’s Doing Tonight” went to #21 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #23 on the R&B Chart. De Vorzon was the founder of Valiant Records, and he became a very successful producer and composer for film and TV. He wrote music for Bless the Beasts & Children (“Cotton’s Dream was retitled “Nadia’s Theme” for The Young and the Restless), Private Benjamin, The Comeback Kid, and Mr. Mom. Among his many credits are music direction for S.W.A.T., Simon & Simon, Another WorldGuiding Light, and As the World Turns.

This song is not to be confused with the 1968 hit by Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart that was also titled “I Wonder What She’s Doing Tonight.”

Here are the lyrics to “I Wonder What She’s Doing Tonight” by Barry and The Tamerlanes:

“Can’t help it if I wonder
Wonder what she’s doing
Can’t help it if I
Wonder what she’s doing
Tonight (tonight)

Oh, where can she be (tonight)
As I sit alone I just
Can’t help but wonder
If she still thinks of me

Can’t help it if I wonder
Wonder what she’s doing
Tonight (tonight)

Oh, I wish I knew (tonight)
Is she in somebody’s arms
And is he holding her
The way I used to do

Can’t help it if I wonder
Wonder what she’s doing
Tonight (tonight)

I thought that I
Could do without her
Thought that I could
Get along just fine
But I was wrong

For ever since
We said goodbye
I just can’t seem to
Get her off my mind

Can’t help it if I
Wonder what she’s doing
Tonight (tonight)

If she only knew (tonight)
That I’m sorry and I’m still
So much in love with her
I wonder what she’d do

Can’t help it if I wonder
Wonder what she’s doing
Tonight (tonight)

I wonder she’s doing tonight
I wonder she’s doing tonight…”
