The Slice

No. 1 song on this date in 1967

You want to talk about songs that absolutely drip summer? Here you go.

Back in June of 2010, I invited readers to leave me phone messages in which they sang the first part of this song. More than 70 brave souls took me up on it. I sent those snippets of singing to a former colleague, Andrew Zahler. He sliced and diced and turned them into a couple of highly entertaining audio files.

You can still listen to them. Here's how.

Go to this website's home page.

Enter "Ode to Billie Joe" in the search bar. (It's up high, over on the right.)

Then click on Audio Clips. There are two fun-filled collections you can play.

More than two years later, they still make me smile.
