Music I Like: Music to Watch Girls By - The Bob Crewe Generation

This music was played originally on a TV commercial, as I recall, then became a radio hit. I don't remember what the commercial was for, but I know I always liked the song. There was a vocal version by Andy Williams that was popular, too, but I think the instrumental is better.

"Music to Watch Girls By" was the first Top 40 hit by Bob Crewe using his own name, recorded by his group The Bob Crewe Generation. Crewe first heard the song performed in a "jingle demo" for a Diet Pepsi commercial. Music was composed by Sidney "Sid" Ramin. The "big-band, horn driven"[3] recording went to #15 on the pop chart and #2 on the Easy Listening chart.
