You Silly Savage

Welcome to the uncomfortably fey world of Teddy and Darrel, purveyors of today's musical monstrosity - Strangers in the Night.

Those of you au fait with with the output of the legendary Camp Records (and if you're not, I'll post some of their ridiculous recordings at a later date) will recognise the modus operandi immediately: the vocalists swishing their way through a well known hit of the day, rendering it suitable for only the gayest of the gay or those idiots who find this sort of thing amusing.

This track, one of a dozen similar cuts on their Mira Records album These Are The Hits, You Silly Savage, (others include These Boots Are Made For Walking and Hold On, I'm Coming made the b-side of the duo's one and only 45, the flipside of which was an appalling meander through the Troggs' classic Wild Thing.

The 'musicians' hiding behind the T&D epithets are alleged to be nascent Hollywood scriptwriter Theodore Charach and writer/producer and erstwhile politician Mike Curb. Shame on them.
