MP3(s) of the Day
On this day in 1965, the film How To Stuff A Wild Bikini starring Annette Funicello and Frankie Avalon was released in the US. Avalon’s role was reportedly minimized as “punishment” after he asked producers for more money than they were willing to pay. He only appears on-screen for about six minutes. The movie is notable as it features the only big screen appearance by The Kingsmen (the famous garage rock rock band from Portland, OR). After hearing the original title track for the movie, I was convinced I could write a better theme song. Today we have the original recording, How To Stuff A Wild Bikini and the Tullycraft song Wild Bikini for which it inspired.
