'He’s My Blond Headed Stompie Wompie Real Gone Surfer Boy' by Little Pattie
For sheer whimsy, it is hard to go past the one minute and forty seconds of 'He’s My Blond Headed Stompie Wompie Real Gone Surfer Boy’ by the 14-year-old Little Pattie.
Apart from being one of the longest song titles in the history of popular music, Pattie’s yodelling chirrups at the end of each line of the verses and the coy spoken bridge section after the second verse earn it a special place in Australian pop music.
It got to No. 2 in the Sydney charts and saw her awarded a Best Female Vocalist Award for 1963.
