Den Simms, Eric Buxton & Rob Samler, "They're Doing the Interview of the Century—Part 3," Society Pages (US), September 1990

FZ: In 1967, we were living in New York, and I got a request from an advertising agency. See, I did one commercial in '67 for Luden's Cough Drops, and that got an award. It got a CLIO for the best music in a commercial in '67. Then I got this request from Remington. They were looking for some kind of a 'new sound' for their commercials. (laughter) So, Linda Ronstadt happened to be managed by Herb Cohen, who was our manager at the time, and they supplied me with this advertising copy, and they wanted music for it. So, Ian Underwood and I put together this track, and Linda did the vocal on top of it, and we made a demo. They paid a thousand dollars for the demo, and that was the last I ever heard from 'em. They didn't like what I did.

 

Lyrics

Can you think of a better gift
Than something that helps a guy
Look good and feel good
Every single day of the year?
Can ya?

Remington Electric Razor, Remington Electric Razor
Remington Electric Razor, Remington Electric Razor

Only the Remington gives you the comfort that . . .

Remington Electric Razor, Remington Electric Razor
Remington Electric Razor, Remington Electric Razor

Thrills & cleans you
Cleans & thrills you
Sharper cutting
Up go the shaving heads
Down go the shaving heads
Up go the shaving heads
Down go the shaving heads
That's how the Remington gives you a closer shave
Cleans you & thrills you a lot . . .
Cleans you, thrills you, may even keep you from getting busted!
