“Splish Splash” was co-written by Bobby Darin and DJ Murray the K

in his career, reaching # 3 on the singles charts. It was recorded during
an evening session at New York’s Atlantic Studios. The song was credited
to Darin and “Jean Murray”, a combination of the first name of Kaufman’s
mother “Jean” and his first name. This was done to  avoid any hint of
