Music Monday - "Li'l Red Riding Hood" by Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs (1966)

"Li'l Red Riding Hood" was a novelty hit in 1966. It made it to number 2 on the Billboard Top 100.  This song was sung by Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs.  Sam the Sham was actually Domingo Samudio.  He  hauled his music equipment in a 1950's vintage hearse!  Here is a fun performance video from 1966, interspersed with an old Betty Boop cartoon.  I thought this fun, quirky song would be a good music break today.  

Do you remember this tune?   What is your favorite novelty song?

I love this song!!! My high school sweetheart listened to "oldies" and this was one of my faves! It was in a thriller too but I can't remember the name.
