Brian D 12:09:06 PM
Oh this Nat is so slick. Love this version
David Shortell 1:05:08 PM
I didn't know old gospel could be so topical! "Atom and Evil" was evidently made in 1946, a few years before the Russkies got the A-bomb.

“Down With The Blues”
Sonny Boy III (host) 1:45:14 PM
That seems like a good bet! It says they gave out 100 prizes. I wonder how many different submissions they got?
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ- 1:45:40 PM
Or the less obvious “This Doesn’t Smell Like Teen Spirit”
Sonny Boy III (host) 1:45:59 PM
A record ahead of its time!

Ry Cooder's version of "Tamp 'em Up Solid" featuring the lyric "kick the waterboy in his yes yes yes" or close to that.
Brian D 2:54:00 PM
I don't buy the Google & other sites copy pasta of the lyrics for Ry's version
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ- 2:58:13 PM
Can someone please start correcting all the wonky song lyric submissions all over the EnterWebs?? Thanks!!
Brian D 2:59:38 PM
Yeah right! I had an old Black Sabbath sheet music book w some funny censored substitution lyrics
