"Hot Potato" was the first track off of Yummy Yummy, and is the Wiggles' song that just about anyone can name off the top of their heads.

It was originally written by John William Field, when he thought of it on the spot during The Wiggles' busking years. The song was originally called "Hot Tamales", but it was re-written as "Hot Potato" once it got a studio release.

This song (especially the 1998 recording) has become the most popular Wiggles' song. It has been performed at just about every Wiggles' concert known, and it's the song that people mostly associate The Wiggles with.
