Yes, *That* Mike Nesmith:

I'm not absolutely sure about when this was written and/or filmed. Originally it turned up on a Music Video compliation that Nesmith did called "Elephant Parts," which was published in 1981, but it may well have been older, and I'm not sure this song ever turned up on one of his albums.

SONG OF THE DAY: "Beep Beep" by Louis Prima (1959)

Sorry there's no actual video for this, but it's still worth a listen

This is a quick little novelty song - one of literally hundreds - that came out in 1957/1958 after the Soviets launched Sputnik.

It's kind of amazing to me that even a little written-in-ten-minutes blow off song like this is great when it's by Swing and Vegas legend Louis Prima. The man could sing the phone book, and make it great. Then he'd give Keely some harmonies to sing, and it'd be greater still!

Crazy, man!
