I was re-reading a thread from early this year about Elvis being banned from the airwaves in 1955 (viewtopic.php?t=75086&p=1132237#p1132237
), and one of the titles included in that "dirty" list called my attention : "Annie Pulled A Hum-Bug"
by The Midnighters.
Well, I knew The Midnighters were the originators of the so-called "Annie" saga, with "Work With Me Annie", and then following with "Annie Had A Baby" and "Annie's Aunt Fannie", but never heard about "Annie Pulled A Hum-Bug"
I made a quick search and found that it was not a record by The Midnighters, but by The Midnights
, a totally different group :
This led me to think about another obscure record I heard years ago in a compilation : "Annie's Answer"
, by the Al Smith Combo, vocals by Hazel McCollum and The El-Dorados
(of "At My Front Door" fame) :
And here's two more : "Annie Met Henry"
, by The Champions
, and "Annie Kicked The Bucket"
, by The Nu-Tones
(with bonus track - I couldn't find it on its own) :
I'm sure there must be more records in this saga. Any additions ?
