Funky Favorites

Growing up, my brothers and I had two novelty records that we basically wore out. The first one was called "Funny Bone Favorites". Check it out here. Thirty-some years later, we tried to remember what the other record was called. After sharing some memory fragments: "girl in bikini", "brown cover", "beep beep song".... I finally found it online.

I still remember being a 4 yr old listening to "Beep Beep (The Little Nash Rambler)". When the song started, I would begin slowly walking in circle in the living room. Then as the song's tempo increased so did my speed. At song's end (120mph), I would collapse giggling in a dizzy haze on the floor.

What the hell was wrong with me?!?
