Judy facts: In the song “Judy Is a Punk,” Judy herself is never called a punk — that’s Jackie — but rather a “runt.” Why the song is not called “Jackie Is a Punk” or “Judy Is a Runt” is one of the enduring mysteries of Judy studies.

There's this one too

Pierre Rapsat • Judy et Cie

I do still think about this song from time to time, but along the way I had somehow forgotten that it was a Eurovision entry (for Belgium, in 1975)

deepening the mystery, when pressed on the issue, joey ramone reportedly said "no i don't know why"

Just heard this song yesterday. A different version, but this one is my favorite because it has two false starts.

Even though I was literally listening to this album yesterday, I forgot to include Nina Nastasia's "Judy's in the Sandbox."

Marc Almond - Saint Judy

Judy is a runt, but she's #1 Judy in our hearts.

Missed this, but approve of the results

I do not approve of Belle & Sebastian getting 2 more votes than Al Green tbh.

Authoritarian Steaks (Tom D.), Sunday, 2 May 2021 11:49 (one week ago) link

Okay, let me modify what I said. I approve of the winner but I do not approve of Al Green getting zero votes.

I voted for Judy in disguise. (With glasses.)
