"FUNKY PHARAOHS"

YouTube - SAM THE SHAM AND THE PHARAOS Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs singing "Wooly Bully" (see You Tube link) in 1965 sold 3 million records that year and was the song of the year despite not reaching number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. "Sam the Sham" (Domingo Samudio) from Dallas, Texas later recorded other songs including "L'il Red Riding Hood' and"The Hair On My Chinny Chin Chin".

I like this video with the two live girl statues, campy outfits and background, and a drummer who stand up while playing. "Wooly Bully" has stood the test of time. So don't be an L7 and get out on the dance floor and learn to dance. Uno, dos, one two tres quatro.
