The Birdie Song.

For those of you lucky enough not to have resided in the UK in the early 1980s, here it is:

That's just the dreaded Chicken Polka with bird whistling over it

No boojie ass white bread wedding reception/overblown birthday party in southern NJ can end without it being played
Preferably before the girl who's always too much after she's had a few asks the DJ to play 'Bird Girls' so she can grab the microphone & sing along

When Moraz first joined, he was walking and he was shocked when he arrived at rehearsal at the big luxury cars everybody was driving.
It was Bruford who later talked a bit about all the arguing and intensity all the time as why he left. Of course he had a yen to join Crimson and that opened up. Wakeman said Bruford got up off the throne at one point and popped Squire in the face arguing about should bass or drums keep the time in one passage, at his first rehearsal.

The singer of one cover band I tried to have actually killed a drummer later, threw a hihat stand at him which found its mark.

Old video, but here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdxkVQy7QLM
