It was one of my repertoire - which also included "Love Theme from Phaedra" by Hank Mancini, and "Walk on the Wild Side" by Elmer Bernstein.  We need them all on this site (NIX - are you listening?).

Ah, then you must also remember that Paul Mauriat number "L'Amour est bleu" (Love is Blue)?  1967 or '68. I was so hooked on that thing . . . I was a little music geek in high school, and I made an arrangement of it from the piano score for our dance band in my senior year.
Do you remember the bans on local radio of Buffy St Marie's "Universal Soldier"?  I think it was Donovan's recording of it -- I'm originally from Rhode Island, and the local rock station yanked it after about 2 days' play.  But then, they also yanked "They're coming to take me away . . ." by Napolean XIV. ("Poor taste."  Those were the days. Roll Eyes)  I don't suppose you'd consider that one?  Haven't heard it in years and years.

I don't remember banning from local stations (maybe because I was in Boulder, CO at the time  Stoner) - but, later, while awaiting training at Ft Devens, Mass, a buddy and I were delighted to discover "Soldier" on the juke box at a little snack bar on post.  The irony was great:  here we were, waiting to be trained as Army Security Agency soldiers - and listening to the very anti-war Donovan song!   LOL

Ugh - you lost me there.  A "crazy" novelty song that I found really annoying . . . not to mention "disturbing".  But, oh well, what the heck - one time and one time only, here at Radio Vietnam, where we aim to please  . . .  M16

Ah, I remember it well.  It was popular the year I was in Vietnam.  My wife would mention it in her letters.  Don't know if it will ever make it into the rotation here, but, for S and H . . .
