lil_red#18 – Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs – “Li’l Red Riding Hood” – (1966)

Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs had multiple big hits, with this being among the best. It’s a rock song but if it came out today it would probably be considered pop. But it doesn’t matter what you call it – how many popular songs have there been based around folk tales?  Not many.
