The New Dance Craze  performed by The Five Stairsteps & Cubie  1971

What a great song. Lead vocals by 2-year-old Cubie...what can I say, I'm a sucker for gimmickry. It's been sampled a few times, too.

from Our Family Portrait (Buddah)




  05 Dec 02 ·gregcaz: Great track, only "Our Family Portrait" was actually released in 1967, it was their second album.
  07 Dec 05 ·Swinging London: Fabulous! Thought the title sounded more '67 than '71...also the very groovy sound, which comes across even on that very short soundbite. Definitely one I'm going to track down.
Eleanor Rigby  performed by Tony Bennett  1968
Composed by Lennon/McCartney

What can be said about this? Long before Tony was on MTV Unplugged, he tried this misguided attempt to 'get hip with the kids'. Funny thing is, I love it. He doesn't sing this so much as emote it. It's reminiscent of some of Shatner's finer moments. I should also note that the album is worth seeking out for the uber-psychedelic cover art alone.

from Tony Bennett Sings the Great Hits of Today (Columbia)



Mrs. Robinson  performed by The Ray Bloch Singers  1970
Composed by Simon-Garfunkel

Wow. This is just...wow. I've just gotta say that I have an absolutely unnatural attraction to this group. Imagine if you will, a chorus of super-square middle-aged white folks, swinging it's way through the rockin' hits of the day, only performing them all with absolutely perfect diction & grammar. The mastermind behind this way one Mr. Ray Bloch, who, according to the back cover to every one of the LPs that I own, was the musical director for the Ed Sullivan Show. All I know is that anything the man touched was gold! Check out his versions of "Penny Lane" and "Light My Fire" on the "Hits of '67" LP, or his absolutely quizzical take on the ENTIRE soundtrack from "Hair".

from Hits of '68 (Ambassador)



  02 Dec 04 ·konsu: Too true... I love the cover too. With the spunky teens shopping and sippin' on ice cream sodas in a flower montage.
  02 Dec 04 ·tinks: i'm glad i'm not alone in my unholy obsession!
Punk Girl  performed by Thee Headcoatees  1997
Composed by Billy Childish

The most snarling piece of the most amateurish punk rock. The guitars shreds through you, and when she sings "I'll beat you down 'til you are dead," I believe it!

from Punk Girls (Sympathy for the Record Industry), available on CD (Sympathy for the Record Industry)



(Uh-Oh) Get Out of the Car  performed by The Treniers  1954
Composed by Trenier-Trenier

Very strongly reminiscent of Etta James' "Rock With Me, Henry", this deals with a subject dear to all of us menfolk, that of having to turn a mistreatin' woman out and makin' her walk home!

from the single (Uh-Oh) Get Out of the Car (Okeh 7050)
available on CD - They Rock! They Roll! They Swing! (Legacy/Columbia)
