one fine day

you’re gonna want me for your girl.

1300 Boynton Avenue
Bronx, NY 10472

It was 1960, JFK was President, and four young ladies from the Bronx’s James Monroe High School were singing together and sounding (He’s so) Fine.

They became the immortal Chiffons, 
and there’s even a ClockTower Estey Piano connection.


That same high school commissioned the Estey Organ Company to supply and install an organ and it is still in existence there today.

Estey Organ was also based in London.

The Chiffons recorded on the LONDON label.

Alas, Estey Organ closed its doors in 1960.

But hey. The Chiffon’s hit #5 on the BillBoard Hot 100 just three years later!

(shoo bee doo bee doo bee doo bee doo wop bop!)

“Though I know you’re the, kind of boy, who only wants to run around.
I’ll keep waiting and, some day darling,
You’ll come to me when you want to settle down. 

"One Fine Day" was ranked #460 on Rolling Stone Magazine's list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time
