Lyrics

About 2 months ago
Mr. Tony signed off from the radio
The weasels all had spoken
The Littles hearts' were broken
And I can't remember if I tried
that Sports Chick show or PTI
I even considered Mike & Mike (!!!)
Oh how, I've missed this show

So here comes Tony's mailbag
Got your e-mails and your faxes and your notes
And he's gonna read some for all o' ya folks
sayin' here comes Mr. Tony's mailbag

A parody of Don McLean, "American Pie"

Best part of any song I have heard so far is the Mike & Mike line. Bravo Bravo. Gets me every time.

The version presented here is the 3rd take on this track. There are a few alternate verses that didn't make the cut, ultimately because they drove the run time up by 30+ seconds. I'm happy with how this turned out but I expected the chorus to sound far more "epic" given that it goes from a folksy solo to a chorus of five people singing in unison. To really get the effect I wanted, though, I think it would have required the same 7 minute buildup as Don McLean's original American Pie -- and I assumed there wouldn't be an audience for that on the radio!
