Dick and Dee Dee is an American singer-songwriter duo that reached popularity in the early to mid-1960s. The group was founded by California classmates Richard Gosting and Mary Sperling. They eventually changed their names to Dick St. John and Dee Dee Sperling, respectively.

Dick St. John and Dee Dee Sperling met while students at Paul Revere Junior High School in Los Angeles, California.

They attended different high schools, only to re-encounter one another after graduation. At the time Sperling was attending college and working at a See’s Candy store, and St. John was looking for a job. They realized they were singer-songwriters, and together they began writing songs and singing the vocal parts. The duo were not romantically linked.
