Musical Interlude - With Glasses


John Fred & His Playboy Band - Judy In Disguise - 1967

Judy in Disguise was jointly written and composed by John Fred Gourrier and band-mate Andrew Bernard. It is actually a parody of "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds," which The Beatles released a year earlier. Instead of the psychedelic sound of the Beatles song, "Judy in Disguise" is bubblegum pop, but with similarly obtuse lyrics. According to John Fred, John Lennon loved the song. Said Fred: "When I met John Lennon, that's the first thing he asked me. He thought it was great. He said the first thing he was going to do when he got home was write a song called 'Froggy in a Pond with Spectacles.'"
