Default Talking song

I am looking for a specific song from the 1960s. Unfortunately, I don't know much of anything about it. I just remember listening to it when I was young. It is a "song" in which the singer (male) doesn't sing, but talks, to the music -- sort of like 60s-style rap. The only other thing I remember is that I liked it, and would like to hear it again. I know that's not much to go on, but I don't think there were too many songs from the 60s like that. Does anybody know any?

If you heard I guess it was on the radio? It might be a hit. I don't know that many 60s spoken word songs, I can only think of Napoleon XIV.

Leonard Nimoy - Highly Illogical


Napoleon XIV - They're coming to take me away, ha-haa!

Bit obvious, but is it something by Gil Scot Heron?

Actually, I don't think I ever heard it on the radio. I had it on a tape. I don't think it was ever really a hit-- a lesser known one, unfortunately.

Not Highly Illogical, but thank you. Being a Star Trek fan, I like this one.

Not Napoleon XIV either. Actually, the one other thing that I remember about the song is that it was serious -- almost to the point of being depressing, I think.

Not this one. A little bit too "rappish". I remember the artist's voice being "slow and low", not excited like Heron. The music was more "conventional".

No, Reunion and Ken Nordine are not it. As I said, I don't think it was very popular, so I may be on a "wild goose chase", but I appreciate any other suggestions anyone can think of.

Well, it looks like there are no more suggestions. Perhaps it is a lost cause. I thank everyone who tried, though.
