  • Was used on a commercial for Friskie's Cat Food during the early 1990's. (sav-man)
  • Because the two men were dining at "King Yum's", Resnick had suggested that the word "yummy" would make a great title for a song. Levine initially said no, but reconsidered and began a skeleton version of the tune (with the word "yummy" multiplied three times). (sav-man)
  • Joey Levine co-wrote this tune with Artie Resnick (of "Under The Boardwalk" fame, among other classics he wrote) at a Chinese restaurant in New York called "King Yum's." (sav-man)
  • When the "real" Ohio Express (who began life as a garage band called Sir Timothy & The Royals) heard this song (after it had been released as a single), they were simply told by Kasenetz & Katz (the producers) to learn it for their tour. They reluctantly agreed (the band was actually more into the heavier Rock of the day, i.e, Hendrix, Cream, et al). (sav-man)
  • However, when Buddah president Neil Bogart heard this demo, he ordered that Buddah put the demo version out as a single with the Ohio Express' name on the label (even though they did not play on it)! He also mandated that Joey Levine (who was initially hired to simply be a songwriter) should sing lead on all future Ohio Express singles! (sav-man)
  • The "real" Ohio Express members did not play on this recording. What you hear is Joey Levine (lead vocal) backed by sessioneers! This recording was intended to be a demo version, which the "real" Ohio Express would be given. They would then learn the song and record their own version of it later. (sav-man)
  • From the 1968 album THE OHIO EXPRESS (on Buddah Records). (sav-man)
  • Charted #4 (pandy2)
