"He picks It's Only Make Believe, Hoots Mon! and Tom Dooley and lets me get the Chipmunks song if I promise to mime it for a party piece."

It's Only Make Believe by Conway Twitty, Hoots Mon! by Lord Rockingham's XI and Tom Dooley by the Kingston Trio were all UK chart entries in late 1958. The Chipmunks SongĀ was a novelty record of the same period 'sung' by an animated music group billed as Alvin and the Chipmunks (sometimes, simply The Chipmunks).
