    Instanbul (Not Constantinople)

    Originally from 1953. Recorded by a Canadian group: The Four Lads :-)

    There`s been more than 20 recording versions of it since then...
    Bing Crosby?
    Bette Midler? = WTF!

    I first saw this on MTV`s Liquid Television. So many horrible yet entertaining videos were aired on that program.

    Ha, I was hoping they`d show the `video` from Animaniacs... and for the song Triangle Man (also from They Might Be Giants).

    I like the original, but the TMBG version is still good too. I was a little disappointed in the Bing Crosby version, I thought I`d like it better. I won`t even listen to the Bette Midler version. She`s annoying.
