Original Song: Jimmy Jones "Handy Man" (1960)


Sweet Baby Sapsucker somehow managed to take this jaunty, spring-stepped R&B number—which Del Shannon actually hit with the definitive pop-rock version of, in 1964—and inject it full of the gooiest and rolfingest "I'm OK You're OK" yoga-mat insect-repellent rubdown oil of the entire Me Decade, so mellow it's downright slimy. So be careful not to get any on you. Right James, you are “handy” and “busy 24 hours a day” so she'll “cumma cumma cumma cumma cum cum.” Now if you'll pardon me, I need to go take a shower.
