Happy Birthday, Tiny Tim

Today is Tiny Tim’s birthday.  If you only know him for his campy, goofy songs, then please take a few minutes to play the song above.  You’re in for a treat.

I really consider him a heroic, inspirational figure.   His was an odd dream– he wanted to sing songs from the 1890s to the 1920s, in falsetto, in white-face, accompanied only by his ukulele– but he persevered, he worked hard, and he made it come true.

He lived the life he wanted to live.  Who could ask for more?
