After bringing Gerald home from the hospital and after completing all of my obligatory phone calls Les asked, "Surely you have SOME amusing anecdote to relate, don't you?"
I said, "Well, the doctor's name was Jude but I refrained from singing Hey, Jude, and the nurse's name was Crystal; Gerald and I both serenaded her with Crystal Blue Persuasion."
"Do you know what's sad?" I asked. "The girl had never even heard of the song." Gerald asked her if she'd watched Breaking Bad because the song was on the final episode.
Listen to Tommy James and The Shondells recording from 1969.
