Song of The Day: Lili Von Shtupp – I’m Tired

Happy birthday to comedy legend, Mel Brooks! I’m Tired shows off both the tremendous comic power of frequent Brooks collaborator, Madeline Kahn, and the legs that helped get her there (http://www.forbes.com/sites/toddgilchrist/2014/05/16/mel-brooks-on-blazing-saddles-madeline-kahns-gams-and-never-saying-no-to-the-n-word/).

I don’t believe that there is another director, at whose work I have laughed so frequently, and continue to do so upon each subsequent viewing. Just some of Brooks’ classics: Get Smart, Blazing Saddles, The Producers, Young Frankenstein, Silent Movie, High Anxiety, History of The World Pt 1, To Be Or Not To Be, Spaceballs

My other favorite Brooks song, Love Power, from The Producers, with Dick Shawn as Lorenzo St DuBois
