REPOSTED REPOST

(C) 1968 ZDF Networks

Reparata and the Delrons was an American girl group popular in the 1960s. They are best known for their recordings of "Whenever A Teenager Cries" and "Captain of Your Ship" and for Reparata's 1975 solo hit "Shoes".

"Captain of Your Ship" is the title of a pop song first recorded by the US girl group Reparata and the Delrons and released as a single in 1968 on the Bell record label. It was written by Kenny Young and Ben Yardley.

The song is unusual in its atmospheric use of sound effects (foghorn, ship's bell, Morse code) and features psychedelic instrumentation and treatments including electric sitar, backwards piano, filtered vocals and phasing. Lead singer Mary O'Leary told Mojo magazine in May 2008, "I thought it was horrible - the foghorn, the way they had changed my voice with effects. But I grew to like it, and it afforded the opportunity to go over to London ... In America, it fizzled. People in England liked quirkier stuff, and 'Captain of Your Ship' was quirky."
