Driving around town today, I figured that this was as good a time as any to post the song, "The Eggplant That Ate Chicago." For reasons unknown to man, this was a sort of hit in 1967. (That it was a sort of hit is not the oddity, it's that it got any airplay at all, most especially in the rock era. Though, strange as it is, it certainly is catchy. In an odd sort of way.) It was performed by Dr. West's Medicine Show and Junk Band, whose lead singer Norman Greenbaum wrote the song and had a respectable career on his own.
And no, I did not have eggplant for lunch today, so I'm not exactly sure what got me thinking about this song, though there's a limit to how many times in a row you can sing, "My Kind of Town" or "Chicago," so every once in a while you need a change of pace.
This is officially a change of pace.
