Funny you should post, it was THIS VERSION that did it! (though a different video, a mesh with "Camarillo Brillo", it was a vid of this particular performance). One of the most awe-inspiring solos ever.

Can't listen now however 'cause it'll just make me homesick. . .

Thanks Frank. I'd wager I'm not the only one who stronlgy associates some artists and songs with the circumstances in which I first heard them ( or "rediscovered" them). I've got Christmas songs, Halloween songs, songs for Summer and Spring. There are songs by American artists than will always remind me of England, and European bands that remind me of home. There are country songs that will always bring me back to dingy nightclubs, and songs about urban decay that I always whistle on the shores of tranquil lakes. . .

Speaking of wholesome, when I went to download Shock the Monkey on iTunes, the 'Ping' service window suddenly popped up, the list jumped and I accidentally purchased the cover of StM by Don Ho. Don Ho? Mr. "Tiny Bubbles"? I was pissed at first, but I decided to keep it just for grins. He sings it reasonably well, but that's like watching "Putting on the Ritz" done well by the steroid mutants of the WWE. The album, by the way, is titled, "When Pigs Fly".

Don Ho. Go figure.

No, Barber, we don't want you to sing.

I don't know what she will say but in my opinion that's so wonderfully bad it fills me with joy. Perfect Grade A American cheese.

Thanks Frank!

I'll run it by her. My opinion is similar to Ezra's, though for some reason I'd assumed it was British.

Clears throat. Gale Garnett was a major figure in popular song.

To Mr Barber's point a little research reveals Ms Garnett was born in New Zealand and raised in Canada. From her singing voice I thought she was American. It would be interesting to hear her speaking voice.

Frank don't misunderstand. Cheese is not a sign of lack of musical talent. Far from it. Your disco band was merely sad. True cheese reaches another level altogether.
