"Loving You Has Made Me Bananas" is one of the most original novelty songs ever to grace the UK Singles Chart. It was written and performed by the American impressionist Guy Marks (1923-87) and was a one hit wonder, indeed, it appears to be both the only single he ever recorded and the only song he ever wrote.
Released originally in 1968 on the ABC label, it was backed by "Forgive Me My Love
" which was written by Peter DeAngelis, who also produced the record. When it was released ten years later, it earned him an appearance on the BBC chart programme Top Of The Pops
in May 1978 where he performed it live complete with big band.
