Nancy Adams – He’s Stuck in the Chimney Again

(click song title above to listen)

While stumbling around in the tape vault a couple of years ago we came across this little gem, the original 1966 demo for Cy Coleman‘s “He’s Stuck in the Chimney Again”.

The music is by Coleman (who was riding high at the time with Peggy Lee’s #1 pop hit “Big Spender”, a song from the Broadway production of his hit musical, Sweet Charity) and the lyrics are by Floyd Huddleston. Coleman and Huddleston had enjoyed some chart success with “Sweet Talk” recorded by Damita Jo for Mercury Records the year before. The vocal is sung by Huddleston’s wife Nancy Adams, who is also the lovely voice behind Maid Marian from Disney’s 1973 film Robin Hood.

Please enjoy this superb version by the Jon Rauhouse Orchestra feat. Rachel Flotard of Visqueen!

Happy Holidays everyone!

Cy Coleman – He’s Stuck in the Chimney Again

While stumbling around in the tape vault the other day we came across this little gem, the original 1966 demo for Cy Coleman‘s “He’s Stuck in the Chimney Again”.

The music is by Coleman (who was riding high at the time with Peggy Lee’s #1 pop hit “Big Spender”, a song from the Broadway production of his hit musical, Sweet Charity) and the lyrics are by Floyd Huddleston. Coleman and Huddleston had enjoyed some chart success with “Sweet Talk” recorded by Damita Jo for Mercury Records the year before. Floyd was born in Leland Mississippi and would get his start writing songs for Glenn Miller‘s band during WWII. His pop compositions would later include “Just For Laughs”, and “You started Something” plus lyrics for songs in several films including The Ballad of Josie and Midnight Cowboy and for Disney: The Aristocats and Robin Hood.

We hope you enjoy. Happy Holidays everyone!
