Jonathan Winters & the Martians: Nee Nee Na Na Na Na Nu Nu b/w Take Me to Your Leader
(Coral 9-61988; 1958)

In memory of the late, great absurdist Jonathan Winters, I present this two-sided slice of fun with the improvisational master in rock and roll mode for a one-off single for Coral Records. The A-side was also recorded by Dickie Doo & the Don'ts, and British ska band Bad Manners, but why would you listen to any other version? Any bets on whether the tune influenced Mork from Ork's signature greeting?

Now we know where Robin Williams got Mork's "Na Nu, Na Nu" greeting.

Next time I will read all of the post before I point out something you already have, sorry.
