Girl Talk- Bobby Troup, Julie London, Howard Roberts
This is no doubt one of the most sexist songs ever written, and this video just amplifies that a hundred fold. But it's done with such style and panache that ya just gotta love it. This song clip, 15 years or so before the term "music video" came along, was done by M*A*S*H director Robert Altman for a TV special in 1966.
I've always liked the tune, and had two versions in my collection before I even knew it had lyrics. The music is by Neal Hefti (the Batman Theme and many light jazz pieces) with words by Troup.
