Little Darlin' by The Diamonds is an upbeat doo-wop song written by Maurice Williams and originally released in 1957. It is composed in two sections, one in B♭ major and the other in G minor, and consists of 31 measures. It is a classic example of 50s vocal harmonies, with The Diamonds singing in four-part harmony over a steady bass line and a prominent lead guitar part. The song's lyrics are a call to a lost love to return, urging the lovelorn to have faith and remember their time together. It is an oft-covered song, with versions produced by the likes of the Beach Boys and The Jackson 5.
