    The third guy, Roussous, keeps giving us the finger. In fact, he keeps giving us all of them. Cool.

    In the early '60's, Lawrence Welk played this number on his show, sung by Larry Hooper. It was near my bed time. Song scared the hell out of me and I hid behind my grandmother. Great song.

    I believe he was the snot-nosed little brother of the BG's, and had a solo career. If he was actually in the BG's, he was a spare tire near the end.

    Great song, dude. Love that Wodka.
    I was born three months after my parents moved to the U.S. If they had stayed in Europe, this would be my song:

    Saw that a lot of you also checked the Country charts. Mine was the same for Pop and Country. A song for all seasons: Smoke, Smoke, Smoke that Cigarette.
