Tommy Roe’s “Sheila” Hits No. 1

Sept. 1, 1962 - Taking the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 today is “Sheila” by Tommy Roe, an ABC-Paramount release. Roe originally conceived the song as “Frita,” based on a real girl from his high school. The song was auditioned to a record producer, and while response was enthusiastic, it was suggested that the name be changed. By coincidence, Roe’s Aunt Sheila was visiting, which inspired the final title.
