"Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini" by Brian Hyland

OK, more 60's: This Vance/Pockriss '60 novelty composition was the 1st and biggest hit for a 16 year-old singer from Queens, NY backed by the John Dixon Orchestra. The "adventures" of a shy girl at the beach. #1 US, #8 UK. Trudy Packer recited the spoken phrases before each chorus. Sold 1 million copies the 1st 2 months. Used in a Yoplait Light TV ad, in "Sister Act 2" and in "Revenge Of The Nerds 2". Artist? Song?

Yesterday's answer: From John Passow: "One of my favorite songs from the very early 70's ... Toast & Marmalade for Tea ... Tin Tin .... I thought for the longest time this song was by the Bee Gee's ... for good reason ... Maurice Gibb is closely connected :) A GREAT song!!"
