Jonathan and Steve (and the Baby at #1)
It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

Jonathon and the Tammys are old faves, but Little Egypt is a stone classic

Jonathan and the Bangles for me... and I never saw the Tammys and Steve Martin's King Tut before, those are fun!

I also hadn't ever seen that clip with Jonathan Richman's blissful smile before.
Although I really do prefer the one with the BBC's Legs & Co.'s homage to Wilson Keppel & Betty, but it's not on YouTube anymore. :cry:
