'Calcutta' by the Four Preps.
YouTube Video by SVansay.
A German pop song made popular by American band leader Lawrence Welk in 1961, it has been covered by so many artistes because of its cute lyrics and up-beat rhythm. The 4 Preps version on YouTube, with beautiful Indian ladies galore, is winning so many hearts again today. Thanks to S. VANSAY.
The instrumental versions are by Lawrence Welk, Ventures, Les Baxter and Petula Clark sings it in French. The song charted #1 at the US Pop Hits.
These are songs that came to be before Cliff Richard and the Shadows emerged from Britain, about a time when we, in Singapore, had the Flamingos, the 3 Bambinos and before the Crescendos even cut their first vinyl.
