There are probably earlier ones but here are three that have been in my memory bank a long time:

Doo Wop, anyone? Let's step back on the Timeline.

Here's the Regents doing the original in 1961:

WS,

Good, good stuff! Wow, do you ever know your music, and your Timeline. "Chattanooga Choo Choo."

How about this? It's not a song we usually associate with him:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mpxo7oDxyQM

And that led me to this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BCMvzKeQ ... re=related

It's a "you had to have been there moment," but you'll get the picture. Back in my university days, as the pressure of final exams was building, I was in a students' bar with a couple of friends, drinking pitchers of beer.

Out of nowhere, this big, powerful, jock-type guy stands up at one of the tables and - in the deepest bass voice you ever heard - bellows out, "Ba-ba-ba-ba-bara-ann."

Now everyone's turning around to see if there's going to be trouble, when at the far table, someone else stands up, and in a voice a level higher, adds, "Ba-ba-ba-ba-bara-ann."

Then a third, at another table, followed by someone else who thought he could sing "soaring tenor" (he couldn't), adding the top with a squeeky falsetto.

Before long, the entire bar was on its feet with every drunk choosing what he thought was his voice level, while new people packed into the bar by the second to join in.

"Ya got me rockin' and a rollin', Barbara Ann, ba-ba-ba-ba-bara-ann."

Great fun!

The other stress reliever during final exams was the Auditorium ran ROADRUNNER cartoons 24 hours a day. You could wander in and watch poor old Wile E. Coyote get his, then head back to the books.

Okay. That's it. I'm off to my meeting of YouTube Anonymous:

Do you want to know why they call him "the Killer?"

Here's the definition of "full stride piano."
