Rockin' Funnies: The Streak (1974)

Ray Stevens landed a #1 hit on the pop & country charts in 1974 with "The Streak", an amusing commentary on the then-popular fad of streaking, which might've peaked when someone decided to try it at the Academy Awards.

Anyway, while Stevens later re-recorded his classic and made a music video to go with it, we're going to go with the original audio recording from '74.

"Streak", I think, was the last pop Top 40 entry for Stevens, as he's been exclusively a country comic ever since.
