"Tall Paul" is a song recorded by Annette Funicello and written by the Sherman Brothers. It marked the first time that a female singer reached a top ten slot for a rock and roll single. It also spotlighted Annette from amongst the other Mouseketeers on the Mickey Mouse Club and paved the way for the movie career which followed. Walt Disney personally took notice of the string of chart toppers which the Sherman Brothers were writing for Annette and subsequently asked the songwriters to work for him exclusively. The Sherman Brothers went on to win two Oscars for Mary Poppins several years later. "Tall Paul" was credited to Annette and the Afterbeats and reached #7 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1959. It was the highest-charting song by Annette Funicello and also one of the shortest, clocking in at 1 minute and 38 seconds.Annette Funicello made a cameo appearance as herself in the 1989 film Troop Beverly Hills, while jogging she's singing the first line of "Tall Paul": "Chalk on the sidewalk/Writing on the wall/Everybody knows it/I love Paul", and being pursued by Frankie Avalon, also playing himself.
