This song was released as a single on 5 November 1965, reaching No. 2
in the UK, and No. 74 in America. The composer reportedly wrote the
song on a train and is said to have been inspired by the Queen Mother
who is alleged to have had his 1935 Packard hearse towed off a
street in Belgravia because she was offended by the sight of it during
her daily drive through the neighbourhood. For two points, name the
group that played the song and the song's composer.
