Ooo Eee Ooo Ah Ah, Ting Tang Walla-Walla Bing Bang.....

On this day 4/28 in 1958, David Seville hits #1 on Billboard's pop charts with "The Witch Doctor". The song used the unusual technique of recording the singer's voice at a different speed than the music. Songwriter and singer Ross Bagdasarian (who recorded under the name David Seville) topped the charts again at the end of the year with "The Chipmunk Song," sung by his chipper cartoon band creation, the Chipmunks. I loved this song when I was a youn'un, back in the early 60's. My son loves it too. For some reason, my daughters were never as amused.
