    Eva Narcissus Boyd, better known as Little Eva, died 10 years ago on April 10, 2003 aged 59. On August 25, 1962 she hit the No.1 spot on the Billboard charts for one week with her biggest hit “The Loco-Motion”, written by Carole King and Gerry Goffin. “The Loco-Motion” was also a major hit around the world (e.g. No. 2 in the UK and No. 1 in Canada) and during the years there were also many cover versions released. Although she has got another top 10 hit in 1963 with “Swinging on a star” (UK No.7) she is often counted as a one hit wonder.
