Here is a song that has been running through my mind a lot the past few days, for some reason.

He sang a lot of shlock, but when he wanted to, man could he bring it.

Ladies and gentleman: Lou Rawls.

Do not adjust your sets, except to turn up the sound. There is no video.

As it should be, your resident curmudgeon harrumphs. Here, stare at the album cover while you listen. That is the multimedia experience as it was meant to be.

And hey, if you're reading this on a laptop, you can even clean your stash, right on the album cover! Also as it was meant to be! (Ask your grandparents.)

Wikipedia reminds me that this song was originally recorded by Mable John, in 1966. The same page tells me that this song was also recorded some years later by Captain & Tennille.

In 1980. The same year Ronald Reagan was elected.

I will leave you to draw your own conclusions.
