Royal Teens – The Artist\s

The Royal Teens were an American rock and roll band that formed in New Jersey in 1956 and originally consisted of Bob Gaudio on piano, Tom Austin on drums, Billy Dalton on guitar, and Billy Crandall on saxophone. The group is best known for its single “Short Shorts”, which was a number 3 hit in the United States in 1958. The follow-up single, 1959’s “Believe Me”, hit number 26. They never recorded an album, and broke up in 1965.

Short Shorts – The Song

Short Shorts  is a song written and performed by Tom Austin, Bill Crandell, Bill Dalton, Russ Viers, and Bob Gaudio, members of The Royal Teens. It was popular in both the US and the UK. The group originally released the track on the small New York label Power Records in 1957. The term “Short Shorts” in the song referred specifically to very short cutoff jeans as worn by teenage girls. The term appears to have originated with Bob Gaudio and Tom Austin. According to the group’s website, they coined the term in 1957, and hit on using it as a song theme and title that summer when they saw two girls in cutoffs leaving a local teen spot.

High-Waisted Shorts – The Shape

Modelled into a side profile of a lady wearing a pair of short shorts. Originally these where very short cut-off jeans but can also include the more modern high-waisted shorts made of  a more stretchy material.
