Re: 30 Day Song Challenge

It's a toss-up between "Soggy Pretzels" by Neil Diamond, a spoof on the old bar songs and Edwin's "Radio Star" a spoof on the ego-inflated rock stars.

"Cryin' in your pretzels, cryin' in your beer, cryin' on the table, that's where I found you dear." After 40 years that song still crackes me up.



This is from the DVD "Mile Marker."

Re: 30 Day Song Challenge

Song from last year..."I Don't Know How I Got By"...Edwin M. It is from the movie "The Family Man."

My favorite album is also Edwin...Edwin does a cover of Dire Straits' "Romeo & Juliet" that just makes you buy out the Kleenex Corp..
