MP3 Monday - Happy Lincoln's Birthday

The Funniest Man Since Attila (the Hun)

You, the great Internet-surfing public, have, in our great democratic tradition, voted for the MP3 for today, Abe Lincoln's birthday! And here it is, comedian Bob Newhart's early live standup of "Abraham Lincoln Versus Madison Avenue," from the 1960 album The Button-Down Mind of Bob Newhart. Enjoy listening to it as you blow out the candles on the stovepipe hat:


The fine print: All downloads are provided for entertainment purposes only. VGG.COM apologizes for the poor audio quality of the MP3 file. It was taken from a poorly maintained vinyl LP. If you don't like it, feel free to buy us a CD copy of The Button-Down Mind of Bob Newhart and mail it to us. Cause that would be awesome.

Next Week: VOTE NOW

Next week is President's Day, and instead of wasting it buying matresses or Toyotas at low, low, prices, why not spend it listening to next week's MP3 Monday selection! Use the comments button to VOTE now!

*"Rappin' Reagan" - Doonesbury cartoonist Garry Trudeau cooked this up for his 1984 musical revue Rap Master Ronnie.

*"Jimmy Carter Says Yes" - A great/terrible "song poem" from the 1970s.

*"Van Buren" - An anti-Van Buren song from the 1964 LIFE magazine album Sing Along With Millard Fillmore, featuring their recordings of real campaign songs. Van Buren totally gets ripped a new one in the song.


It has to be the Van Buren song. If it's not the Van Buren song, I may have to bitchslap some sense into this here In-turd-net.

I agree, but perhaps not quite so, um, enthusiastically.
