World's Worst iPod" Chick-a-Boom (Don't Ya Jes Love It)

July 27, 2016

What a perfect earworm!  Chick a Boom, Chick a Boom, Boom Boom!

A singer and songwriter named Richard Monda thought "Daddy Dewdrop" was a much cooler name--and apparently he was right!  He took the song "Chick a Boom (Don't Ya Jes Love It)" all the way to #9 in 1971.

Monda was the guy in charge of the music for a Saturday morning cartoon show Sabrina and the Groovy Goolies, a spinoff of the Archies cartoon. He wrote the "Chick a Boom" song for the show, and thought it was SO AWESOME he got together some studio musicians and recorded a version of it on Sunflower Records.

Here's the cartoon version. Hope it's not too scary for you!
