The Pipkins took it all the way to #9 in the summer of 1970. The Pipkins weren't a real group..they were Roger Greenaway and Tony Burrows, who took care of lead vocals on songs for other groups around the same time: Edison Lighthouse, White Plains and The First Class.

Kitty's favorite line: "I wanna give it all to you, in the darkness!"
Let's go back, way back to 1972 for this song that featured great lines like "sock it to me sock it to me" and "gotta find a woman," and tells us all about Bertha Butt, "one of the Butt Sisters." It made it up to #6 on the billboard pop charts, and #4 on the R& B charts.
This got just about the best reaction of any of the iPod songs so far. And by that we mean worst.
Four years ago, Bob Dylan, who is Jewish, recorded a Christmas album.
It may be surprising to some that it was actually pretty good! And it inspired him to be involved in the creation of this video, which is amazing.
