ANSWER SONGS: WAS THAT YOUR VINYL ANSWER? 

Since the early days of collecting, I have focused my efforts in obtaining specific types of music including "monster" novelties, Christmas novelties, "second tier" pop hits and miscellaneous novelties. 

From the latter came an unexpected "offshoot" of these; a type of music which we refer to as "answer" songs. While evaluating my already massive collection of clean 45's sometime in the late 70's, I discovered that a considerable number of my treasures had a common thread. That thread was answer, or parody songs. 

As a result, I made a conscience effort to acquire more of these interesting songs, and started researching this brand of music further. To my surprise, there were literally thousands of this type of novelty and my interest blossomed tenfold. During the last 20 years or so, I have actively sought out many titles on my ever-growing want list, and boast a considerable number of this unique style of songs. Although it should be quite obvious, there are actually two types of "answer" songs. True "answer" songs, as the name would imply, are a direct answerback to a pop hit. 

On the other hand, "parody" songs attempt to "poke fun" at a hit. Several examples of common "answer" songs include Jeanne Blacks classic "He'll Have To Stay", a reply to Jim Reeves monster hit "He'll Have To Go", Jody Miller's "Queen Of The House", in response to Roger Miller's standard "King Of The Road", and Thelma Carpenter's "Yes, I'm Lonesome Tonight", an answer to Elvis' "Are You Lonesome Tonight". 

Some examples of "parody" songs would be Homer & Jethros "The Battle Of Kookamonga", poking fun of Johnny Horton's "The Battle Of New Orleans", Sandra Gould's "Hello Melvin This Is Mama", making light of Allan Sherman's novelty smash "Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah", and The Romeos hilarious "The Tiger's Wide Awake" from The Tokens "The Lion Sleeps Tonight". While the majority of answer songs are recorded by a group/artist other than the original, some originate from the same source. 

Examples of this would be Lesley Gore's "Judy's Turn To Cry" which is her follow up to "It's My Party". Bobby Lewis notched a #1 hit with "Tossin' And Turnin" in 1961, and tried to recapture the magic with "I'm Tossin' And Turnin' Again" a year later. 

Unfortunately, his follow up paled in comparison and barely managed to make the charts a year later. It has often been said that sequels often fail to reap the success of the original, and this is certainly true with answer songs. 

Most answer songs find only minimal success on the charts, yet they still serve a useful purpose in the rock and roll scheme of things. While many answer songs are marginal and easily forgettable, I have discovered many interesting gems along the way. 

Later postings will reveal some of my personal favorites with detailed discussion. For now, though, I just wanted to set the stage for anyone with even a lukewarm interest in this topic. 

I am also attaching (partial) listing of some of the titles I have archived, many from clean 45's obtained at a King's ransom from E-bay and private collectors. Feel free to E-mail me with any questions on any of these or other related titles
