Tom & Jerry were formed in 1957 and had their first success with the minor hit 'Hey, Schoolgirl' b/w 'Dancin' Wild', hitting No. 49 on the Billboard charts.
They performed 'Hey, Schoolgirl' on Dick Clark's American Bandstand, right after Jerry Lee Lewis performed 'Great Balls of Fire'. They were strongley inflenced by the Everly Brothers. They later found fame in the mid 1960's as Simon & Garfunkel


I can't remember where I came across this 45. But I do remember the record dealer telling me how much they (Tom & Jerry) sounded like the Everly Brothers. I was more intrigued by the songwriters on the vinyl being Simon & Garfunkel.
