I'm always amazed by entertainers like that. So many talents. Until this moment I had no idea that Carlin was also a singer. (I bet he could juggle as well.)

 

I've got both of those songs (Cherry Pie and Tick Tock) in my collection of LP compilations.

 

 

 

There is another song in the same style done by The Cufflinks a couple of years later in 1956. It's called Guided Missile.

Yes, always more talented than thought with many of them.

 

I think the biggest surprise was Jim Nabors as redneck Gomer Pyle, & the singing voice that came out!!!

Oh yes. I remember when I first made that discovery.

 

Of all his songs though, this is my favourite:

(at the 1'30" mark)

Wow!  That was fantastic, it brought back memories of that song from the ancient times of my youth. George Carlin was a genius, apparently.
