But Ricky wasn't alone. There were lots of cool international sounds -- both foreign and domestic -- flittering about the pop charts of the 1950s and early '60s.
Here are some of my favorites.
Dig the Japanese go-go girls helping Kyu Sakamoto with his hit "Sukiyaki."
Here's the great South African singer Miriam Makeba, who brought her country's music to the U.S. a quarter century before Paul Simon's Graceland.
Blame it on the bosa nova. I knew "The Girl from Ipamena" was sexy before I even knew what sex was.
Were Art & Dottie Todd the spiritual forefathers of Stereolab?
And we love Ricky
