Why did he keep recording it? I guess he found songs like that fun
to listen to as well as play, and Sharleena is certainly a good
vehicle for highlighting Flo & Eddie's talents and is a logical
extension of the Ruben & Jets/Valarie greasy teen age love
song themes. He honestly LOVED stuff like that. For instance
when I saw the Mothers in 1971, the final encore was a very
slow, very straight version of the Shep & the Limelighters doo-wop
classic "Daddy's Home".
Back to the topic, I find the version of Sharleena on Playground
Psychotics to be lots of fun to sing along with in the car.
That "Sharleena-leena doodledooledoodledoodledoodledoo" stuff makes
me want to sing every time.
