Remember when Big Bad John was first released? "At the bottom of this mine lives one hell of a man -" It was changed very shortly to "big big man"
jeez, I'd never heard that before, ed, network censors at the time must have gone ballistic.
I remember Big Dan Ingraham, on WABC in New York, playing it one day:
song: "At the bottom of this mine, Lies a big, big man"
Big Dan, with mike on: "All skwunched up"
song: "Big Jooohhhhnnnn, Big, bad John" and music fade
Which was totally teenage humor, but then that was my humor level at the time. Maybe still.
