An Early Clue to the New Direction

From 1965 and The Soupy Sales Show, Pookie the Lion (Frank Nastase) lip-synchs "Mumbles" (by Clark Terry and Oscar Peterson).



A coveted PowerPop No-Prize will be awarded to the first reader who gleans that clip's relevance to the theme of tomorrow's Weekend Listomania.

In the interest of fairness, and to prevent anybody's head from exploding tomorrow, I should confess that the clip's relation to tomorrow's theme might charitably be described as a real stretch.

I'm trying to work "Your Lyin' Eyes" in somehow but I know that in this space Eagles references are, as James Brown might say, a bridge too far.

Tribute songs to Barbara Eden? I don’t know of any but surely there must be some!
