Celebrate the Super-Crooner!

"Can even Superman blast Lois Lane's super-crush on super-crooner Perry Como?"
I don't think he could. Noone could resist the charm and the melodies of Mr. C. Not then - not now. Not even if you're a tough guy like Me or Lee.

"Pierino (a.k.a. Perry) Como (1912-2001) was a busy hit-maker. As Colin Escott reported in 1998, "The statistic books tell us that Perry Como has scored 150 hits. That's more post-War hits than anyone but Elvis. More than the Beatles, and more than Crosby and Sinatra combined. ... here are twenty terrific sides by Mr. Como, including a few of his pre-RCA-Victor sides as a vocalist with the Ted Weems Orchestra. ..."
Lee Hartsfeld of Music You (Possibly) Won't Hear Anyplace Else celebrates Perry Como's Birthday with twenty terrific sides of his.
