|Right-facing Weavery (upgraded) on|
Caravanserai Island (Ibis Archipelago)
Originally performed by Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs, (Sam aka Domingo Samudio), The Pharaohs, (Butch Gibson, David Martin, Jerry Patterson, & Ray Stinnet), the song reached #2 on the Top 40 charts in 1965.
The song was covered by Joan Jett twice, being released on 'Bad Reputation in 1981 & on 'Fetish' in 1999.
For those curious about the infamous line "let's not be L7", it is a hipster's way of saying “let's not be square.” (when you put the letters “L” and a number “7” together they look similar to a square.)
The song has also been covered by The Tubes, Bruce Springsteen, & The Ventures.
