Music Monday - "Let's Go (Pony)" by The Routers (1962)

I am certain that I never heard this tune until I chanced upon it playing SongPop recently.   It is so fun and catchy I had to share it with you!

"Let's Go (Pony") was a 1962 hit by The Routers.  This group started playing together in 1961.   Their style was instrumental surf rock.  "Let's Go" made it to #19 on the Billboard chart.   I can just imagine Gidget and her friends dancing - or surfing - to this fun song.  It features clapping and sounds a bit like a pep rally.  Who doesn't need a pep rally on a Monday morning?

Have you ever heard of this song before?  (I will be so impressed if you have!)   I'd love to hear from you in the comments, below.


  1. I loved this song!!! How awesome!! Was it in the actual Gidget movie? I love that movie!! I saw it on TCM a couple of years ago and I fell in love with her character. Great post! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I've never heard this song, but you're right--it does sound like a pep rally. I love the music.

  3. Thanks for the visits and comments. A.M., this wasn't in the Gidget movie - but it just seems like a "Gidget like" song to me. :-)
