This song is still sung in black churches... probably in folk Masses, too. It got WAY too oversung over here. For me, it falls into the category of Jingle Bell Rock and It's A Small World After All. The question eventually isn't whether a song is "good" or not... more a question of whether you can stand to hear it anymore. Tie someone in a chair with a pair of headphones and make them listen to endless repetitions of Mony Mony and you'd get the same effect...
