‘Dr. Heckle and Mr. Jive’ by Men at Work – Classic Hit or Miss

“Dr. Heckyll and Mr. Jive” is a song by the Australian group Men at Work. The song was written by Men at Work singer/guitarist Colin Hay, and the recording was produced by Peter McIan. It was released in November 1983 as the third single from their album Cargo, after “Overkill” and “It’s a Mistake”. “Dr. Heckyll and Mr. Jive” was the band’s last hit single in the US Top 40, peaking at #28 on the Billboard Hot 100 in November 1983. The song is about a mad scientist named Dr. Heckyll who creates a potion that turns him into a handsome, talkative man. The title is a parody of The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. The story is also very similar to the premise of the film The Nutty Professor. The song was also performed live on Saturday Night Live on October 22, 1983
