Hit versions by The Del-Vikings (re-recording US #4/R&B #2 1957), Dion (US #48 1962), The Beach Boys (US #18 1981).

From the wiki: “‘Come Go with Me’ was written by C. E. Quick (aka Clarence Quick), an original member of the doo-wop vocal group The Del-Vikings (also spelled ‘Dell-Vikings’ on Dot records releases, with no dash). The song was originally recorded by The Del-Vikings in 1956 and was released by them on Fee Bee Records with Quick as the lead vocalist. The 1957 re-recording released on Dot Records featured Norman Wright as the lead vocalist.

“Dion covered a version of the song on his 1962 album, Lovers Who Wander, and it was released as a single. ‘Come Go with Me’ was also covered by The Beach Boys for their 1978 album, M.I.U. Album. Although not released as a single at that time, the song was later included on a Beach Boys compilation album, Ten Years of Harmony, in 1981. This version was then released as a single to promote the compilation album.”
