    This version of the song was recorded by Matt Bianco in 1985 and reached the No. 13 spot in the UK chart. It was originally a Latin soul instrumental piece which Jon Hendricks later provided the lyrics to before recording it at the Newport Jazz Festival in 1963.  It became a No. 1 chart hit for Georgie Fame, as well as reaching the No. 25 spot in the US charts in 1965.   The song has also been covered by the group They Might Be Giants and is featured in the films Good Morning Vietnam and Shanghai Knights.
