John D. Loudermilk - his music over the years has ranged from the brilliant to the outright odd and weird. He has penned dozens of hits, mostly for other artists, including -
Calling Dr. Casey
Talk back tremblin' lips
The Great Snowman - and many others.
Here are 3 - Language of Love (plus a version done by Sue Thompson), Sitting in the Balcony and an oddity in The Happy Wanderer.
