HELP! I NEED SOME ASPIRIN (1965)
OK, not everything in 1965 was great. This clip from "Hullabaloo" shows us American family entertainment in all it's plastic mid-60s glory. Thank God a revolution was waiting in the wings. Here is possibly the worst rendition of a Beatles song ever, performed by Jerry Lewis and his son Gary (remember "This Diamond Ring"? remember nepotism?). See if you can endure their jaunty little version of "Help!"
I'm not a religious man, but if there is a hell I'm sure these guys will be singing in the lounge.
