What your non-response -- at least until the fourth time asked -- proves is your painting me on this forum as some kind of villain reeks of hypocrisy.

You can't even take yes for an answer! Don't worry -- I won't make the same mistake twice.

BTW -- it's not "arrogance" when the person is correct. Food for thought.

The comment is a play on the phrase "People who won't take yes for an answer" -- in other words, a person so ungracious they cannot comprehend when someone is doing them right.

Actually, I did not say that.

Subtlety is clearly not your forte.

See ya!

A mighty win for a mighty track. Tiger man is an underground classic by Elvis, seldom found on any compilations.


Regards and thanks for voting!

Just thought about this track Tiger Man. As this album was made up of film tracks, what was Tiger Man doing on there anyway?
Too Much Monkey Business was not a film song I know that.

The only connection I can think of is "Singer" sewing machines.

Don't mention that song again! lol
Hello misfortune, how's my old friend "Mr. Misery"?
I've been away so long I bet you think you saw the last of me
Got no bed, to rest my head
No doors or walls or window pane
Now all I needed was the rain
rain, rain, rain, rain

Met a little honey at the "Buzzin' Bumble Bee Cafe"
Yes I did
One drink and all my money and that honey bee had flown away
I'm 'bout as low, as I can go
I don't really mean to complain
Now all I needed was the rain
rain, rain...rain..rain

All I needed was this rain...
All I needed was the rain...um..um.....

:D
