I had the singular pleasure of seeing an honest to goodness Wayne Newton Las Vegas show in the early 80s. And wow, what a spectacular treat. His opening song was Comin' to America, by Neil Diamond. As a surly Gen X teen, I tried to resist enjoying the show which was clearly meant for an older crowd and full of loungey songs like Danke Shoen, but you know... Wayne Newton is just so uniquely fancy and unironically amazing. He won me over by the end.
Here's a link to a quick video I made, where I was putting some finishing touches on my painted 45. https://youtu.be/Btm3loWBB5c
