FlinterFile: Dr. West’s Medicine Show And Junk Band- The Eggplant That Ate Chicago

This song would do well in the category novelty hits by artists with an interesting name.The song was written by Norman Greenbaum, who later had a hit with his song Spirit In The Sky. This band released four singles, of which this was the most succesful in 1966. The song is about an alien invasion, better said: about an eggplant from space that eats Chicago. It would be parodied by several artists, with interesting titles like The Pizza That Ate Chicago, The Aubergine That Ate Rangoon and The Cockroach That Ate Cincinnati. The original song was a number 52 hit in 1966. Enjoy
