"Hushabye" is a song that was written by Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman in 1959 for the doo-wop vocal group The Mystics. It spent nine weeks on Billboard Hot 100, reaching #20 at its peak. Disc jockey Alan Freed featured "Hushabye" as the closing tune on his televised Saturday night "Big Beat Show". The song was later covered by the The Beach Boys on their 1964 album All Summer Long and it featured Brian Wilson and Mike Love on lead vocals. In 1993, two new versions of the song appeared on the Beach Boys' box set, one live version and the other a split track with vocals in one channel and instruments in the other. Jay and the Americans released a cover version of the song on their 1969 album, Sands of Time.
