my my my delilah



Maybe it's because I'm due for another haircut.  I just don't know but I found myself listening to this song today.

On "Wait Wait Don't Tell Me" I discovered that girls were paid by a PR guy (strange work?) to throw panties and room keys at Tom Jones.

Back in my teens I didn't even care much for Tom Jones.  What's new pussycat was sorta fun though.  I still think that line is a good one when you meet an old friend.  I never remember to use it.  I probably didn't listen to the lyrics very closely back then.  Did you realize Delilah dies in the song?

You need a haircut. You need to keep not liking Tom Jones. He's creepy.

Wow I learned more about Tom Jones than I ever cared to know - your blog teaches me so much and reminds me I need a haircut too... and MORE HAIR! W.C.C.

What...the panty throwing was a hoax??

I had no idea! Greeting friends with "What new pussycat?" I may have to try that!

Huh. Never did like Tom Jones (he seemed smarmy to me), so I never paid attention to the lyrics. But I just googled them - the woman doesn't just die, she's murdered. Creepy.

creepy? Now Steve Buscemi is regarded as creepy. I found a list of creepy actors but I would not include many on this list.

No comb overs - they just look bad

I guess so. Oh wait are you referring to the Tom Jones panty throwing or some other panty throwing?

lisleman said...

Let us know how that greeting works.

You are so right. I should have used the word murder. If you sing about murder they probably go easier on your sentencing. thanks
