    I love the word whimsical. First person that comes to mind when I hear that word is Johnny Mathis. But I digress...

    Happy Birthday IASW!

    I love the self-deprecating humor in this article! Little things like:

    “The song’s perpetual cheery disposition may be grating on some nerves but there’s no denying it’s a catchy tune,” adds Sherman, with a wink (who confides as an aside that his home doorbell also plays the first few bars of the song).


    And:

    Since 1966 more than 100 million people have enjoyed the four different versions of the attraction around the world, resulting in numerous Internet articles citing its title tune as one of the greatest “earworms” (songs or melodies you just can’t get out of your head) of all-time.

    And what are they doing this Sunday? NOTHING. Not even a parade or a collectors churro. It's a good thing I'm not going to be in the park this Sunday.
