Welcome to the wiki.
Were both of the versions in question created officially by The Crystals, or is one a cover made by some other band? Eighty5cacao 16:14, 20 November 2011 (MST) (proofread 06:52, 13 August 2013 (UTC))
I actually deleted that part for these reasons: it is almost the same song, and they are variant with the name change in the lyrics (His Name is Jill vs. His name is Bill) and one is by a different author.
The Crystals did not do it first as I thought, The first one is from Shaun Cassidy
And I do not know if it is official, may look it up!

- That's what we call a cover version. Someone writes a song, one recording artist records the song, and another artist records the same song. They both licensed the song from the same songwriter, perhaps through a private or government-run copyright clearinghouse, and they both give credit in the liner notes. The "Songs that sound alike" pages are for cases of plagiarism, or copying without attribution. --Tepples 11:09, 21 November 2011 (MST)
