This 45 from the 1967 movie "Bedazzled" has been on my wants list for the last few years, and it has been quite difficult to turn up. What makes this 45 so special is a mixture of disparate elements: the swirling, psychedelic groove, the beguiling chorus of ladies that set up the call and response, and Dudley's dead-pan response (with statements like my favorite "You fill me with inertia", I'm reminded of the blank postruing of the punks 10 years later). Damn good.

You can hear a minute of this tune here. You want to listen to track #8.
