APRIL STEVENS ~ TEACH ME TIGER (1960)!

APRIL STEVENS ~ TEACH ME TIGER (1960)!

HERE’S A COOL DOWNLOAD FROM JENSEN BRAZIL:


Banned in many markets, Teach Me Tiger nevertheless made Billboard's Hot 100 and capped at #86.

Teach Me Tiger has had many lives in the last 25 years. Re-recorded twice in 1965, the new version became a camp classic in many U.S. and foreign cities. On April 6, 1983, the astronauts aboard space shuttle Challenger requested the song as a wake-up call. NASA obliged the crew, and April was again in the news.

The song has always been one of the highlights of Nino (Tempo) and April's (Stevens) stage show, as April, growling and cooing playfully, caresses the face of some unsuspecting male audience member, while Nino warns "Watch it guy, that's my sister!" Still popular today in many parts of Europe, Teach Me Tiger was recently used as the theme for a bread commercial in Germany.
