Jump

Derek and Clive

May1366

Note:  The B List as posted lists Jump by Dudley Moore. But the song is actually performed by Derek and Clive, alter egos of Peter Cook and Dudley Moore. So it is Dudley Moore, but with Peter cook as Derek and Clive. So I have attributed the artist as Derek and Clive.  Email if it really should be attributed to Dudley Moore. In any event, May1366 is indisputably the one who nominated it.
