But did you know that it's not freshly a cockamamy childrens' poem and that it flat-top the pop charts in 1958? Did you know that the squeaky voice of the Witch Doctor in the tune is in actuality the same voice of the world-renown Alvin and the Chipmunks?

The visual artist who had a #1 hit in 1958 with "The Witch Doctor" was David Seville; the selfsame David Seville that in the order of a twelvemonth subsequent was all over and done with the energy airwaves (and in a bit TV too) crying "ALVIN!" (and ahead a Grammy in 1959).

David Seville was the podium dub of Ross Bagdasarian Sr., calved in Fresno, CA in 1919 (and died in 1972).

"The Witch Doctor" was not Seville's early #1, though it was the nursery rhyme that propelled his profession to worldwide attractiveness and fortune. In 1951 a ode he co-wrote next to his cousin-german and made scriptwriter William Saroyan, "Come On-A My House" was a #1 hit for player Rosemary Clooney (aunt of the noted role player George Clooney).

"In 1958, my family circle was low to our final $200. Being a human at heart, my dad did what any separate prudent human would do. He took $190 of it and bought the most recent nation of the art cartridge recorder, one that allowed him to shift slip speeds. As he tested to conclude what to compose about, he dotted a book on his desk, Duel beside the Witch Doctor. In a busted of creative energy, oil-fired primarily by unharmed panic, he wote 'Witch Doctor' - a limerick in the order of a guy who's hopelesssly in friendliness and goes to see a witch general practitioner for advice..." -Ross Bagdasarian, Jr.

But how was the Witch Doctor's voice, and the Chipmunks' voices in fact created?

Since if you build-up the tempo of the tape, the TEMPO of the execution likewise speeds up, in order to get the in demand repercussion of correct tempo cooperative next to the squeaky voice, Seville had to transcript the songs melodic them at more or less partially rate - a heavy charge especially for the Chimpmunks' files which had dual characters and triad surroundings.

"Bagdasarian did all the voices himself, a dull act that took three life and cardinal cartridge tracks in a sign workplace. He called the Chipmunks after Al Bennett and Si Warnoker, the heads of his history company, Liberty, and Ted Keep, the demo get for the session." -StraightDope.com

As for "The Witch Doctor," upon its liberation by the financially strapped Liberty Records, it changeable to #1 and sold more than a cardinal copies. Alvin and the Chipmunks' "The Chipmunk Song," which debuted in November of 1958, did even improved.

"When the particulate matter decreed in mid-January 1959, "The Chipmunk Song" had sold four and a partially a million archives in 7 weeks. An all incident text in the auditory communication conglomerate...In 1964, the Beatles ["I Want to Hold Your Hand"] eclipsed "The Chipmunk Song" for quickest commerce opus of all example. Figuring if you can't hit them, tie together them, Pop visited the Beatles in London. And, beside their blessing, released The Chipmunks Sing The Beatles." -Ross Bagdasarian, Jr.
