The Hit Parade: There's Something About Mary

In which The Hit Parade dust down their Spanish guitars, set the rhythm to 'driving Motown beat' and revisit the hallowed ground of their worldwide smash Hitomi. Monkees fans will smile at the "Mary, Mary" reference in the harmony; Jonathan Richman fans will acknowledge this single as the second greatest record called There's Something About Mary.

B-side The Boy Who Loves Brighter pays a pagan tribute to the winsome ways of - you're ahead of me here, I suspect - Brighter, by imaginging what Noah's Ark would sound like if played by The Carpenters. A Royal Variety Performance 2011 invitation awaits, surely.
