"Judy In Disguise (With Glasses)" is a song that was a hit for the Louisiana-based John Fred and his Playboy Band in early 1968. The song was jointly written and composed by Fred and bandmate Andrew Bernard.
The song features strings, brass, a sitar, piano, bass, guitar, drums, breathing sounds, and dissonant string sounds. Its title is a play on "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds."
The other members of the Playboy Band did not like the unusual slow abrupt ending with Fred intoning the final line, "I guess I'll just take your glasses."
Los Quando's released a Spanish version in 1968 in one of their EP's, with the title of "Judy con disfraz" with Spanish lyrics by Julio Guiu Sr.
Gary Lewis and the Playboys released a cover version on their 1968 album, Gary Lewis Now! Silicon Teens, the virtual British electronic new wave pop group created by Mute Records founder Daniel Miller, released a radically different electropop version in 1979.
