Anyone know if this is a cover? It doesn't sound like either of the two "Melissa" songs on site that would have existed when this was released in 1967 but the label doesn't show any credits and the B side is a cover so I'm not sure.

Peter Thomas [DE] wrote it as the theme for the German adaptation of the Thriller TV series Melissa

Peter Thomas und das Sound-Orchester had a big hit with this instrumental early 1966 in Germany


This Melissa theme was not present in the original British TV series from 1964.
