Today's Tidbit

Tiny Tim released "Tiptoe through the Tulips" on this day in 1968. I never personally understood Tiny Tim and still don't but what I find was significant was that he was only doing a cover for a song that already existed when Nick Lucas had written and performed it in 1929. It actually was No.1 on the charts in 1929 for 10 weeks!  That original performance was in the movie "Gold Diggers of Broadway" which was the official second all color/all talking movie ever made. I think I just took a Tiny Tim song and found relevancy I didn't know existed. Considering the size of the moon in this following excerpt it could have as easily been "Tiptoe in the Moonlight" Enjoy!
