THE CASTAWAYS – “LIAR LIAR”
- It was written in 1965
- It was originally recorded by The Castaways
- It was written by James Donna & Dennis Craswell
- They were two of the band members of The Castaways
- It was released by label Soma – nowadays Unidisc
- It was a hit in the USA only
- In fact, it was their only hit – a one hit wonder
- The song peaked at # 12 in the Billboard Hot 100
- Curiously, the song has been immensely populair outside the USA, like in Russia and France – where “LIAR LIAR” is included in commercials, films en TV series. For example, the song features prominently in Russian TV series "GRAZHDANSKIY BRAK” (2017) and it featured in French feature film “INTERSECTIONS” (2013).
