March 24, 1966: "Ballad of the Green Berets" by Sgt. Barry Sadler

Oh well. Win some, lose some, as our involvement in Vietnam attests.

US: Me & Mrs Jones - Billy Paul
UK: Long Haired Lover From Liverpool - Little Jimmy Osmond

Hmmm, I see a pattern there... one a classic slice of Philly soul about schtuppin' the neighbor's wife, the other about a limey lover with lengthy tresses. Sung by a Mormon, a religion which used to espouse polygamy. The message that I get is that I'm all about the LOVE of the ladies.

Could be worse... my wife got US: One Bad Apple - Osmonds. Ugh...

Bloody hell if I don't end up with "Get Down" by bleedin' Gilbert O'Sullivan. Didn't even want to piss about with your yank chart but when I did it was lovely. Some piece of rubbish called "Night The Lights Went Out in Georgia by some bird name of Vicki Lawrence!

Boys, boys, boys, I'll take your "One Bad Apple" and "Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia" any time.

Ach, pearls before swine....

You'll notice she did not mention the esteemed Sgt. Sadler's only hit. I wish I hadn't mentioned it either.

That's Thelma "Mama" Harper to you.
And remember: "little sister don't miss when she aims her gun."

You mean that bleedin' ugly old bird from the chat show?
Me hands are already full of those sorts at the pub!
The old blokes think they're going to get a piece from these
old hens and get in a bit of tizzy when I have to toss their bums
out of the pub. Every night it's a bloody row!
But it's a bit of a gas at times isn't it?
