This song brings back memories of cold nights in the South Dakota rain forest in 1992. We had loud speakers hung up in several trees blasting this song all night so that the enemy troops could not sleep before we cleared the camp the next morning. I will never forget the faces of those villagers as they fled.
Fun song!
I thought the Byrd was the Word...?
I can't help thinking about Steve Carell doing karaoke in his apt. with this song in 40 Year Old Virgin!
