    I'm going with sweet betsy from pike.

    I think it is the best song ever made. I know it is a rip off of an older song, I don't care.

    It is the best song ever: change my mind.

    This makes me think of my dad, who was always sing / humming the chorus to Billy Bayou while he worked around the house. I'm gonna have to go with that one.

    I dare you to get this out of your head once you hear, or even think about it!

    As I post another I realize that perhaps I am rather an odd duck:rolleyes:

    When my daughter was young she loved to watch this show, so we watched together. She hadn't learned to whistle so she would try to sing the whistles. Of course I took to whistling this and never stopped. Once in a while, one of the youngsters at work will recognize what I'm whistling :twisted:

    When I was riding cycle time trials I would sing "I knew the Bride when I used to Rock n Roll" to keep a tempo. On Tandem Time Trials it would be Bach Brandenburger Concerto No.9 (Jaques Loussier Trio version) as neither of my regular partners rode with such a high cadence.

    So, I have a confession to make. Whenever I glue anything up, I sing "Tenth Avenue Squeeze-out" to myself.

    I'm such a dork.
