Song Of The Day – 12/15/11






Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “Delicious” by Jim Backus & Friend

From the zany song parodies of Allan Sherman to today’s own Weird Al, novelty records have been a staple of the pop charts for many years. Back in 1959, Jim Backus and Friend released this delectable novelty and took it to the top 40 of the charts. The “friend” on this record was the voice of actress Hermione Gingold, and most of us remember Jim Backus from his role on TV’s “Gilligan’s Island” and, more importantly, as the voice of Mr. Magoo.
