1965 Patty Duke – Say Something Funny

Patty Duke had an exceptional career on television and in film ,and for a brief moment in 1965, she also had a career in music.

Thanks to her success playing twins on the Patty Duke Show, inevitably United Artists Records tried to use her to sell records. They multi-tracked her voice to enhance her singing and selected songs that allowed her to emote as much as sing, and it worked. Her first single, Don’t Just Stand There, peaked in the top ten on the Hot 100 in 1965.

Her second singleSay Something Funny, struggled a bit, and peaked at only #22. That was enough for a Greatest Hits album, and her last charting single only reached #64 in 1966.
