Beans In My Ears

This great but extremely dangerous little song was Number 30 on the charts in 1964.  I can remember singing along to it on the radio.  What I cannot remember is exactly why.  Guess I’m just a sucker for repetitive lyrics and a catchy tune with a message.  Len Chandler and the Serendipity Singers meant it as a statement about adults not listening to their children.  What followed the songs release was a number of radio listener complaints and doctor reports about children putting objects in their ears, so the song was banned and black listed.

This is one of the reasons we can never go back to the sixties.  It’s just too scary.  Listen at your own risk.  Hide the beans.
