Bobby Darin – Splish Splash –

American Bandstand

“Splish Splash” is a 1958 song performed and co-written by Bobby Darin. It was written with DJ Murray the K (Murray Kaufman), who bet that Darin couldn’t write a song that began with the words, “Splish Splash, I was takin’ a bath”, as suggested by Murray’s mother, Jean Kaufman.

The song was credited to Darin and “Jean Murray” (a combination of their names) to avoid any hint of payola. The song helped to give Bobby a major boost in his career, reaching No. 3 on the U.S. pop singles chart.

It was recorded in a session at New York’s Atlantic Studios on the evening of April 10, 1958.
