CDADave: Putting Boomers In Their Place

“This’ll Put Baby Boomers In Their Place Dept.: Englebert Humperdinck (whose real name is GERRY DORSEY) turned 70 years old today! Actually, I kinda like his music. I also like Nat “King” Cole, Al Martino, Tony Bennett, Frank Sinatra, Andy Williams, all of those crooners. Don’t try to get me to listen to Jim Nabors, though; he has a voice that could PEEL PAINT! So what do I think Englebert’s best song is? I really like his version of “Am I That Easy To Forget”; it’s got a dynamite rhythm arrangement, and he literally THROWS himself into the song. I’ve got an interesting question…if Rock Singer Rod Stewart is now doing old torch songs, will Englebert, who’s made a career out of torch songs, be singing the “Led Zeppelin” songbook on his next album release?”

Question: C’mon, Boomer, admit it — you liked Humperdinck, and you can’t believe he’s 70, right?
