Humpty Dance and other love songs

"I sang on "Doowutchyalike and if you missed it..."

(everyone in unison)

"I'm the one who said, 'just grab her in the biscuits'"-----Digital Underground Humpty Dance as sung by me in a Walmart dressing room. Yes, I was pant-less and trying on a watch.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! The beautiful sounds of love.

Dearest Homeys:

Its always nice to reminisce about sights, sounds, smells and nagging itchiness that love brings to that dismal void you call life. And after the aforementioned itchiness subsides, your are left with tons of dead skin under your nails and songs. Yes, the sappy love songs that affect your heart like a double quarter pound lard burger with extra grease and a side of cheese smothered bacon.

It's those love songs that remind you of your past or your present, well why would want to remember your present if you are already living it? Anyhow, you know what I mean.

So, my dear readers, send me a list of those sappy love songs that you cherish so dear. Doesn't matter what genre. Just send me your list (5 or more), and I will make a compilation 8-Track which I will sell on T.V. for only $19.95(all proceeds will go straight to me.) I'll even throw in a "If you act now..." Maybe I'll offer two 8-tracks for the price of 3. They'll never know the difference.

The genre(pronounced geenreee, it's swahili) I will choose, is the infamous Power Ballad. Oh yeah, that's what I'm talkin' about!
