Jackie Riggs - His Gold Will Melt
Here's a real puzzler. Can't find out much about this guy except that some have called him a "doo-wop" or "Northern soul" artist. But this weirdo song sounds like Tony Bennett backed up by the freaky elves in Santa Claus Conquers the Martians.
Curiously, the intro is a dead-ringer for They Might Be Giants' "Lie Still Little Bottle", and it makes reference to having a TV set in every room long before the Monkees' "Pleasant Valley Sunday".
