the painless dentist

Allan Sherman’s song,  “The Painless Dentist Song”, was released in 1965 on the album, My Name Is Allan. Throughout his career he dabbled in many different areas of showbiz, but become famous for his song parodies in the early 60s.  Much like Weird Al Yankovic (who admires Sherman), he took popular songs and re-wrote the lyrics.  This particular song is a parody of “The Continental (You Kiss While You’re Dancing)” by Leo Reisman & His Orchestra.  His most famous song was undoubtedly “Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah”, a song about a young boy writing home from summer camp to his parents.

    That was really well done!
    Much classier than Weird Al.
    And here I though a sense of humor was invented in the 60′s with Rowen & Martin’s Laugh-In.

    Laugh-In, what a crazy show! There had to have been some bit of dental humor in that show, but we haven’t come across it yet.
