"Bend It" went to #2 on the British singles charts. It also did well in Europe, going to #1 in Germany and Denmark. In Australia it reached #2 on the singles chart. Unfortunately, many radio stations in the United States banned the record because of its suggestive lyrics. As a result Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich recorded a second, less suggestive version and the original version was pulled from record stores. Sadly, this didn't help a whole lot. It only reached #110 on the Billboard singles chart. Regardless, it remains one of Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich's more popular songs among their American fans.
Here is the original promotional film for "Bend It", filmed at the London Playboy Club.
