"England Swings (Like A Pendulum Do)" by Roger Miller.

OK, back to the 60's: In the middle of the 60's Nashville Sound era Roger Miller wrote and performed this '65 crossover hit - a stereotypical picture of the London cultural and fashion scene of the day. Peaked at #3 Country, #8 Pop and topped the Easy Listening charts. Covered by Petula Clark and by Pat Boone in '67.

Yesterday's answer: "Operator" by William Spivery. The Manhattan Transfer's debut album remains a masterpiece. We saw them in Des Moines shortly after moving to Iowa in '81. Incredible concert!
