Additionally, it was common in the 1960s and 1970s for longer songs, especially by soul, funk, and R&B acts, to be broken into two parts for single release. Examples of this include Ray Charles 's " What'd I Say ", the Isley Brothers ' " Shout ", and a number of records by James Brown , including " Papa's Got a Brand New Bag " and " Say It Loud - I'm Black and I'm Proud ". Typically, "part one" would be the chart hit, while "part two" would be a continuation of the same performance. A notable example of a non-R&B hit with two parts was the single release of Don McLean 's " American Pie ". With the advent of the 12in single in the late 1970s, the part one/part two method of recording was largely abandoned.

Valentine's Day fell on a Tuesday that year. In New York City, the weather was unseasonably mild. And inside the Broadway recording studios of Atlantic Records, an African-American woman in her youthful prime pounded a piano and began to sing:

The song is a "playlet," a word Stoller used for the glimpses into teenage life that characterized the songs Leiber and Stoller wrote and produced. [3] The lyrics describe the listing of household chores to a kid, presumably a teenager, the teenager's response ("yakety yak") and the parents' retort ("don't talk back") — an experience very familiar to a middle-class teenager of the day. Leiber has said the Coasters portrayed "a white kid’s view of a black person’s conception of white society." [2] The serio-comic street-smart “playlets” etched out by the songwriters were sung by the Coasters with a sly clowning humor, while the saxophone of King Curtis filled in, in the up-tempo doo-wop style. The group was openly "theatrical" in style—they were not pretending to be expressing their own experience. [4]
