The bird is the word? Hardly



While everyone waits patiently for this week's Stuck in the 80s podcast on "Novelty Songs of the 80s," here's an obnoxious video to keep you company: Pee Wee Herman doing the "Surfin' Bird" -- one of the 80s songs we played yesterday during my WMNF gig.

Not only is it sometimes difficult to hear and watch, but I take great perverse pleasure in knowing that I actually paid money to see the movie in which this scene appears: 1987's "Back to the Beach," starring Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello. "Why-o, why-o, why-o, did I ever leave Ohio?"
