On This Day in 1983 – ‘Puttin’ On the Ritz’ by Taco Was Certified Gold

On this day in 1983 the jam ‘Puttin’ On the Ritz’, by Taco, was certified Gold.

The song was never sung better than it was by Gene Wilder and Peter Boyle in ‘Young Frankenstein’!

Here’s that clip:

Here’s the original video:

You may remember that the video caused a bit of controversey. There are a couple of scenes with people in ‘black face’. They later re-edited the video to remove those scenes.
