Your Tuesday Moment of "Words Fail Me" (An Occasional Series)

And speaking as we were last week of possibly unfairly underrated 60s pop hitmakers The Association, a reader forwarded me the following clip from an actual network television show of the period.

Warning: Do not attempt to operate heavy machinery after you've auditioned it.

I think there are two things we can all agree on after viewing that.

1: It's no wonder the hippies at Monterey Pop had a problem or two with the Association's performance.


2: Carol Channing had a variety show? Really?

Someday I'll have to tie you down and force you to watch all of Skidoo.

The sight of Carol Channing in her underwear singing the title song will leave a void where your soul once resided.

Wow, didn't know a woman of her age could move like that. What was she 60 then? Love the song, but that dance routine kind of made me throw up in my mouth a little. LOL!!!

Reminds me of another song. Oh yeah ... "i Should Have Known Better".

Gah. That was horrible.

The scariest thing is that was probably considered hip & edgy at the time!
