Song of the Day: Castaways - Liar Liar

This song plays during the card game in Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, one of my favorite movies of the '90s.  And when I bought the Nuggets box set many years ago, I was pleasantly surprised to hear it there as well; in fact, it's on the original Nuggets compilation from the '70s.  I guess this band would qualify as a one-hit wonder, though I'm not sure this was actually a major hit (according to it went to #12 in the US, but I would guess the average person has never heard it).  At any rate, it should have been a hit, and it's a perfect encapsulation of '60s pop.
