Papa Oom Mow Mow

Music by The Rivingtons, Lyrics by The Rivingtons

Originally Performed by The Rivingtons

"Papa-Oom-Mow-Mow" is a 1962 novelty nonsensical doo-wop song by the Rivingtons. It peaked at number 48 on the Billboard Hot 100, and number 35 on the Cashbox charts. The band released two similar follow-up songs over the next several months, "Mama-Oom-Mow-Mow (The Bird)" and "The Bird's the Word".

    Release Date: 1962

Persuasions : Chirpin

The middle of the 1970's was a period of change. The Persuasions tried a couple of albums for A&M Records which had bands backing them up. They received a lukewarm reception. For a period of several years, Jayotis Washington and it was during that period that the remaining quartet did one record for Elektra Records. Chirpin' was a definitive return to their a cappella roots from which they have seldom strayed, except occasionally as backup singers. It shares, once again, the joyousness and intimacy of four guys pouring their hearts out. Most of the songs are varieties of love songs except for one of the best a cappella tunes ever sung, "Looking For An Echo." It so captures the The Persuasions history, that even if the rest of the album weren't great we would still recommend it for any fan.
