Come to me tonight Come to me tonight Taking everything in sight Except for the strings on my kite.
John Fred and the Playboy Band were a great group of professionals and had a very tight band. Judy in Disquise" knocked the Beatles out of the number one spot on the charts. But since "Judy" was a novelty song no one would take the band serious. My first exposure to John Fred and his Playboy Band was in June, 1966 when I was 13 years old and they were the opening act for Herman's Hermits at a concert in New Orleans' City Park Stadium. They started out with a blistering version of Sam & Dave's "Hold On I'm Coming" and then launched into their original material. By the end of their set thirty minutes later, I and others were hooked. Even though I was too young to get into the lounges they played at, I hung around outside just so I could at least hear them play.

John Fred was really John Fred Gourrier, a Baton Rouge musician who had been working since the mid-’50s, when he was a teenager. By eliminating his last name, he gave himself a stage name so nondescript that it came back around the other way and became descript. His Playboy Band had no relation to Gary Lewis’ Playboys. With Judy In Disguise, a song that he co-wrote with his bandmate Andrew Bernard (no relation to Ed Helms on The Office), Fred came up with a dizzily silly novelty song that made fun of the Beatles’ psychedelic surrealism while, at the same time, indulging in it. Fred’s lyrics for Judy In Disguise were pure daffy balderdash about a lemonade pie with your brand new car and cross your heart with your living bra. But there was nothing psychedelic about the music
