I've heard it done by U2 (of course), and then yesterday I heard what sounded like Mariah Carey singing the same one.

Is it originally U2's? Or is theirs a cover of someone's?
The writers of the song are Phil Spector, Ellie Greenwich and Jeff Barry, my new heroes since Thursday (also: Da Do Ron Ron, Heartbreaker, Chapel Of Love, Be My Baby, Then He Kissed Me, River Deep Mountain High and countless other hits).

The original is by Darlene Love who sang it in 1963.

C ya!
