Until today, I'd never heard of the comedian and songwriter Allan Sherman (1924-1973). He was the Weird Al Yankovic of the 50s and 60s, composing and performing parody songs to millions of television viewers.
This song, "Good Advice", is a real hoot. It turns out that Sherman was responsible for the great inventions and discoveries of the modern age. Who knew?
