"No Milk Today" by Herman's Hermits

Birthday wishes go out to Derek Leckenby, lead guitarist with popular beat combo Herman's Hermits; they'll have to be posthumous birthday wishes, though, as he died in June 1994.

This has long been one of my favourite of the band's numerous hits, which include I'm Into Something Good, Can't You Hear My Heartbeat?, Mrs. Brown, You've Got a Lovely Daughter, I'm Henry VIII, I Am, and There's a Kind of Hush among many others; originally written and perfromed by Graham Gouldman (who achieved a degree of fame as part of 10cc) it was released in October 1966, getting all the way to #7 in the UK, but only going as high as #35 in the US.
