Did you know “It’s All in the Game” was written by a U.S. Vice President?

(Not Pence.)

Many years ago, it was my father who told me the tune of the then-hit song, “It’s All in the Game,” sung so beautifully by Tommy Edwards, had been composed by a Vice President of the U.S., as a violin melody.

I just remembered this and dug the info out of Wikipedia because I put one of my numerous oldies/doo wop collection CDs on the player and Tommy Edwards came up first.

Until I read the Wikipedia entry, I hadn’t known that Dawes won the Nobel Peace Prize. Now I do.

“Teen Angel” is playing now.

That’s all.

Oh, one more thing: I love doo wop.
