Twenty Songs from 1967

Wherein More Details are available

Notice how our language starts to change - groovin, drag, dig…Sir, I see hippies off the port bow, should we unfurl the Sinatra? Did you also notice that while the Beatles didn’t make the top 10 the past two years, the Monkees did. Ha! Screw you, British invasion! I have nothing else to add other than Ode to Billy Joe is one of my favorite songs. Does anyone else think it was an aborted baby?

Here's a joke I'm writing for Jay Leno. It isn't funny, so I think he'll like it: Did you hear The Who are on tour again? Yeah, you know the song "I Can See For Miles?" Now it's "I Can Hear For Inches."

I'll sell the rights to that joke for $50.
