"Werewolves Of London" by Warren Zevon.

OK, more 70's one-hit wonders: Written at Phil Everly's request as a dance number(!), this Marinell/Wachtel/Zevon composition was Warren Zevon's only chart hit as a singer. Hilarious, offbeat lyrics - voted by BBC Radio 2 listeners as the "Greatest Opening Song Line" ever. John McVie and Mick Fleetwood provided instrumental and vocal backup for the recording. Peaked at #21 in '78, remaining in the charts for 6 weeks. Featured in the "Color Of Money" soundtrack ('86).

Yesterday's answer: "Denise" by Randy and The Rainbows. We gave our oldest daughter Lauren her middle name Denise after this song. My good friend Ricky DeAndino and I used to play it and sing it at the Phi Chi Medical Frat Wed. night parties when we were at Jeff.
