Anniversaries and Bananas

Loving You Has Made Me Bananas is a song composed and performed by Guy Marks and The Big Band Banditos.  It parodied music of the big band era with absurd lyrics:[1]

Oh, your red scarf matches your eyes
You closed your cover before striking
Father had the shipfitter blues
Loving you has made me bananas.

It was first released in 1968 on ABC Records[2] reaching #51 in the charts and again in 1978 reaching #25.[3][4]
