"Green Slime" by Richard Delvy

I'm admittedly a huge fan of the movie THE GREEN SLIME, but I clearly missed the Internet meeting about the famous theme song. I didn't know who sang it. I didn't know who wrote it. Charles Fox was bandied about for the latter, but surely he wasn't the singer who belted out "Greeeeeeen Sliiiiiiime!", right?

Right. Charles Fox didn't sing the theme song. But he also didn't write it. The song was written by Sherry Gaden and produced, arranged and sung by Richard Delvy (Richard Delvecchio). There was even a 7" single on MGM Records in 1969!

Sadly, Richard Delvy passed away in 2010. You can find out more about his extensive career, including stints in the bands the Bel-Airs and the Challengers, by clicking here. There's way more than just being the most identifiable aspect of a B-movie classic.
