Murry Wilson - Colonel's March

Murry was fired from The Beach Boys, by the boys. He started producing some classmates of his sons, The Sunrays. They only had one big hit, "I Live For The Sun." During those sessions, Murry fashioned himself a jingle writer and proceeded to record this Kentucky Fried Chicken travesty. It was never used for anything, but was included on the (now out of print) Sunrays box set. Thanks go out to Dana Countryman for turning me onto this recording a couple of years ago. It's a short song, but worth every hilarious second.

The KFC ditty was particularly apropos as today, JANUARY 7, is the day PETA launches their nationwide boycott of KFC (which I'm not endorsing; just passing on the trivia).
