Monotonous melodies with kindergarten rhymes... It doesn't take much to impress people or so it seems. Wow, and they call him a legend? Incredible, I think I'll go and poop out of my mouth and record it and do the payola thing so that the public gets it embedded into their subconscious and they start requesting it non-stop too!

His death came 22 years too late!
