Song of the Week: "Hey Little Bird", The Barbarians

From Cape Cod, Massachusetts, come The Barbarians. They are probably best known for their two later songs, Are You A Boy Or Are You A Girl and the novelty song, Moulty, an auto-biography of their one-armed drummer (waaaaay before Def Lepperd thought it would be cool to have a one-armed drummer!). But this is their first, excellent foray into record making. The song is Hey Little Bird and it dates to 1964. The boys cut it for Joy Records. And it was a massive flop. But believe it or not, the boys actually performed the song live on TV. It's not as good as the record, but cool to see. The clip is below.
