Nursery Rhymes

Here are two groovy 1960s remakes of traditional nursery rhymes. The first is a Northen Soul version of "Nik Nak Paddy Whack" by Lou Lawton, and the second is "Black Sheep R.I.P." by The Playboys. They were known as the Australian Playboys in the US, presumably so as not to confuse them with some other Playboys. A bit like The English Beat. However that is nothing compared to the indignity suffered by The Spinners of having to call themselves The Detroit Spinners in the UK so as not to be confused with a bunch of Scousers in woolly jumpers (although to be fair I would pay good money to hear a Motown version of "The Leaving of Liverpool").

Anyway, here is the music.
