I was trying to think of a witty title for this blog. But, I couldn’t come up with anything funnier than the facts. Mike Myers recently serenaded President Barack Obama and the First Lady with a rendition of “What’s New, Pussycat” from Tom Jones. One question immediately comes to mind: “WHY?!?”
Burt Bacharach and Hal David were presented the Library of Congress’ Gershwin Prize for Popular Song. Lord knows, they were behind a SLEW of hits!

Maybe he’s just THAT good. YOU decide! Watch Austin Powers…er, uh Wayne Campbell…er, uh Mike Myers sing to the Obamas:
