“Raunchy” was a 1957 instrumental track by composer/arranger Bill Justis that peaked at #2 on the US charts. It went on to become a staple number for instrumental guitar bands like the Ventures and Duane Eddy. It is also famous as the song George Harrison used to audition for the Beatles. Later in his career, Bill Justis composed film scores — including “Smoky and the Bandit”.
