I'd love to see Christ come back to crush the spirit of hate and make men put down their guns. I'd also like just one more hit single.

If at a show, I sing one or two songs from that time period (1920s), in the style of that singer...if I feel I did the singers justice, and it magnifies to the crowd and the audience connects to me...when they think they're coming out to see 'Tiptoe Thru the Tulips' and they hear something from 70 years ago that hits them in the heart...that's what has kept me alive.

They put love on an angelic throne. Love is the same today, except it's gone down to a more debased situation. Too many do's and don'ts. I want to thrill the audience with these songs from the days of the Victrola. You know, everyone talks of black man's soul, rhythm, and blues. No one talks about the white man's soul. The white man's soul, in music, was songs like 'In the Shade of the Old Apple Tree' and 'Give My Regards to Broadway.

It's a long way to Tipperary
It's a long way to go
It's a long way to Tipperary
Why They're Repetitive:
It's a long way to the end of this bloody tune; the entire song is a repetition, and it feels like he's singing to an audience that got bored of listening and left.

Super Long Pop Songs:

"Eve of Destruction" Length: 25:49
From "Rock" CD. I wonder what sort of drugs poor Mr Khoury must have been on to record this epic. I really feel sorry for the studio engineer. "Eve of Destruction" has to be the most covered protest song of all time. Tiny Tim's version outdoes them all.
