Originally recorded by Paul Jones (1966).
Hit versions by Peter & Gordon (US #6/UK #16 1966), Alex Day (UK #15 2012).
From the wiki: “Peter & Gordon’s producer John Burgess brought the duo ‘Lady Godiva’, which Burgess had recently produced for the Paul Jones album My Way. Peter Asher recalls that he [Asher] objected to recording the song. The duo’s other half, Gordon Waller, responded ‘It’ll be funny [so] shut up’. The P&G single was recorded at Abbey Road Studios and reunited Peter & Gordon with Geoff Love who, after arranging and conducting the duo’s first six singles, had sat out their last three A-sides. ‘Lady Godiva’ would become the duo’s first Top Ten hit since ‘I Go to Pieces’ in 1965; in fact, becoming Peter and Gordon’s highest-ranking US hit.
