Ear Worms.

Was this the most annoying pop song of all time?

Whenever I hear this it brings back happy memories of the Summer season of 1971. Dad was Master of Kiloran II, I was deck hand, and Danny Whiddon was our Engineer. Danny was always whistling or singing this song around the boat, interrupted by Dad ("Skip") yelling at him to sing something different!

All in good fun.

Brings back memories of kids saturday morning disco and cartoon show at the local community centre ... which was basically a small wooden hut.
But yes, it is a very annoying song.

Mind you, I still think Sally Carr was extremely easy on the eyes! She's had health problems in her later years, but is still singing.
