  11. Jim you are SO the winner! This all has reminded me of "Mr. Jaws" - please tell me y'all remember this. It may have been the first 45 I ever bought. (Which would make Short People the second one. I was NOT cool.)

    It's time for the novelty song to make a comeback! Jim, make one!! Please?!!!?!


    1. I had completely forgot about MR JAWS. I always liked those kind of things. A local radio station (KISW?) used to take snippets from songs, less than a second long, and then string them together and then you had to figure out which songs they were. As with this, it's the figuring out the sample that is so much fun. Same with our SAMLES music club meeting. Seems hard though.
