Jolly green giant

I may not know a whole lot about music, and i don't claim to, but even i couldn't help but notice the similarities between this one and the Olympics' Big Boy Pete. How these guys got away with such a blatant rip-off is anybody's guess. It was a different era... But hey- if you're gonna steal you might as well steal the best. That much i do know, and The Kingsmen knew it too.
Good for them.

Love that song.

It sounds like a parody of the other song, not a rip off.

Love your site.

Thanks Bob,
Either way, this one was definitely 'inspired by' the other.
