“One Fine Day” is one of those songs that bounces you into feel good. The Chiffons have just the right amount of youthful joy to make this work. While Kings piano keeps the song moving forward.
The story is that King and Goffin wrote the song for Little Eva and you can hear the connection with “Locomotion”. However, they struggled to get the arrangement to work and so handed the song on to the The Tokens who then created the arrangement for the Chiffons.
As an arrangement it regularly features as one of the greatest pop songs of all time. It may or may not be. It is, however, a very firm favourite.
