Who's Your Daddy?

The Zombies
The Zombies

In the 1960s, the Zombies were among many post-Beatlemania groups attempting to ride the coattails of the so-called British Invasion alongside hopefuls whose impact was at least good for a handful of singles (Herman's Hermits) and others remembered now only by collectors (Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick, and Titch). Guided by Colin Blunstone's interior monologue expressions of melancholy and Rod Argent's depressive melodics, they scored a pair of singles that dominate classic-rock radio to this day: "She's Not There" from 1964 and "Tell Her No" from 1965. But 1969's dynamite "Time of the Season" is the Zombies' immortal trump card, a rare display of macho swagger — "What's your name? Who's your daddy? Is he rich like me?" — from an outfit that spent much of its time agonizing over its chick trouble or lack thereof.
