Most listeners do remember it principally for the part of the song that's most doo woppish -- the unforgettable opening chant, in which a hoarse low voice repeats "Duke, Duke, Duke, Duke of Earl" in a classic descending doo wop melody.
The When Im Sixty-Four - Various - All This And World War II (8-Track Cartridge, Album) almost sounds as if it's putting itself on, so quasi-dorky is its earnest Duke Of Earl - Various - 100 Rock n Roll Hits of a meaningless phrase.
It's soon joined, however, by a whole chorus of singers harmonizing on the phrase. Those opening riffs are so strong, in fact, that they rather overwhelm the basic verses, in which Chandler croons like conceited royalty. Yet the chorus is almost as memorable as the opening riff, exploding into a jubilant yet haunting passage, ending with Chandler's exclamation "I'm the Duke of Earl.
And so it goes for the rest of the song, but the several repetitions of the opening riff and chorus are classic enough to carry the day. Chandler does climb into some nice winding falsetto at some points too. Exactly who the Duke of Earl is isn't explained -- it's sufficient to note that he's a duke, and that nothing's going to stop him from making his girl his duchess. A classic fun if slightly silly song, the original arrangement of "Duke of Earl" is so distinctive that there haven't been many covers, although Curtis Mayfield and New Edition were among the more notable stars to try; oldies act Sha Na Na, unsurprisingly, also recorded it.
