It’s the end of the weekend. The Steelers found a way to lose, and I’m in my office putting in a little weekend work to ramp up for a long week ahead.
I’m in need of a pick-me-up.
iTunes is apparently magical, because it sensed my need and cued up the perfect tune: Tom Jones, “It’s Not Unusual.”
In case you need a little boost too, I offer the video version from 1965:
I bet Mr. Jones would be very good at Wii Fit Super-Hula. Also, how about those dancing girls? So much goodness here.
I hope you have also seen Dudley Moore simultaneously being Tom Jones and Ludwig van Beethoven… from the show, “Not Only, But Also…”
It’s a longish clip, but worth watching all the way through. Among other delights, you get to see Peter Cook as a popstar William Wordsworth.
Wii fit super hula indeed! Nom nom!
(and while this was too late to salvage my Sunday, my Monday certainly started off right!)
The Tom Jones appearance in Mars Attacks was great, but his brief rendition at the end of the movie (when animals appear) is outstanding.
Elizabeth: Dudley Moore is so super. I hadn’t ever seen that clip. Thanks so much for linking to it.
Amie: Nom nom indeed. I’m glad to help get your week off to a yummy start.
Woy: I’ve never made it all the way through Mars Attacks — I’ll have to seek out that clip.
