"Over Under Sideways Down" was a single by The Yardbirds released on Columbia in the UK and Epic in the U.S. Chart tops: UK: #10, US: #13 [1].

It was the title song to the album Over Under Sideways Down (US, German and French title), Yardbirds (UK title) but is more commonly referred to as Roger the Engineer. The song was based around Bill Haley and the Comets' Rock Around the Clock with Jeff Beck on lead guitar and bass guitar.

The B side was Jeff's Boogie, an instrumental featuring Jeff Beck on lead guitar. Stevie Ray Vaughan has performed the song live on stage. Beck, Bogert, and Appice also performed the song live in concert.

Jeff's Boogie was, although the band claimed writing credits for the song, a thinly veiled cover of Chuck Berry's Guitar Boogie.[2]

The song was featured memorably during a drug binge sequence in the 2009 film Observe and Report.
