“Hungry”  is a 1966 hit single by Paul Revere & the Raiders.  Recorded on the Columbia label, the song reached No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.  It was composed by the songwriting team of Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil.  “Hungry” was covered by Sammy Hagar.  (More from Wikipedia)

The name of the Greg Shaw magazine called Who Put the Bomp is taken from “Who Put the Bomp (in the Bomp, Bomp, Bomp)”, a Top-40 hit by Barry Mann.  This was basically a one-hit wonder, but Mann always concentrated mostly on his songwriting, and he is well known for numerous songs that were co-written with his wife Cynthia Weil – “Blame it on the Bossa Nova” by Eydie Gorme, “Hungry” and “Kicks” by Paul Revere and the Raiders, “Here You Come Again” by Dolly Parton, “Looking through the Eyes of Love” by Gene Pitney originally, etc.
