  In my opinion , Pia Zadora's dance version of " The Clapping Song " is almost as good as the Shirley Ellis original. Zadora's competent vocal is set to a more interesting arrangement than the original , with a heavier , more funky beat ( 'though the extended fade - out becomes quite tedious after a minute or two ). The " b " side is Zadora's take on the song recorded by the Grass Roots , Marmalade etc. It is slower than the other versions , not an improvement , with a tricky arrangement which doesn't really work.
