This thread brought to mind the Sing along with Mitch show featuring Mitch Miller. I remember him as a friendly looking sort but in this clip he looks positively fiendish.:twisted: I would not recommend watching the whole thing as the first 30 seconds is plenty. Mitch leads an all white, all male choir with lyrics posted on the screen for singing along.:dejection:
This show was big in its day.:icon_shaking2:
I was tempted to use this, er, demon myself (not this particular clip mind you). For those who are curious he was the A and R man at Columbia Records and was notorious for keeping rock and roll artists off the label. By the sixties it was clear he lost the war.
And now for my donation. You may have heard this one in Ferris Bueller.
When this was recorded in 1963, Wayne Newton was being marketed as some sort of kid Frank Sinatra. He matured into horrible MOR records (Daddy don’t you walk so fast is a horrid example) and then to Las Vegas mogul. He still doesn't seem to remind anyone of the Rat Pack.
