About Bobby Bloom

Robert 'Bobby' Bloom (1945--February 28, 1974) was an American singer-songwriter. He is known best for being a one-hit wonder with the 1970 song, 'Montego Bay,' which was co-written with and produced by Jeff Barry. In the early 1960s, Bloom had been a member of the doo-wop group, The Imaginations, and sang lead on 'Wait A Little Longer, Son.' Bloom received a big break in 1969 when he was awarded a contract to write and record a jingle for Pepsi, paving the way for his later success with 'Montego Bay.' Bloom also played a role as a songwriter connected to the Kama Sutra/Buddah group of labels. He also co-wrote the song 'Mony Mony' and with Jeff Barry he co-wrote 'Sunshine' by The Archies, their fifth hit single in 1970.
