Doctor Doctor
by UFO

Album: Strangers In The Night (1976)
Charted: 35
  • "Doctor Doctor" is a UFO standard; co-written by lead vocalist Phil Mogg with their new recruit Michael Schenker, it was released as a single in May 1974 backed by "On With The Action" and "Try Me." The album version runs to 4 minutes 10 seconds, and it also appeared on the live double Strangers In The Night.

    She walked up to me
    And really stole my heart
    And then she started
    To take my body apart


    What sort of woman does that to a man? Perhaps the same "White Lady" a certain John Lees wrote about in "Hymn." As Phil Mogg told Michael Hann of the Guardian in March 2012: "We must have done a lot for Peru!" >>

  • This didn't chart when it was first released, but it went to #35 UK in 1979 after a live version was released as a single.
