Henry The VIII I Am By Herman’s Hermits

The British Invasion was in full bloom and no two singles could have been as different as “Satisfaction” by The Rolling Stones and “I’m Henry The VIII I Am” by Herman’s Hermits. Yet, on August 7, 1965, Herman’s Hermits replaced The Stones at the top of the American Singles Chart.

The song was a British Dance Hall tune from 1911, which the Hermits recycled. It was simple and today is somewhere between dated and quant. Still, for one week during the summer of 1965 it ruled the music world in the United States.
