Yes, Bobby Darin still owns it.
But I borrowed it for a little while, and ended up proving my earlier point.
Join me in my admiration and embarrassment:

Yeah. You’re so right. What’s there to say?
But you know it was pretty enjoyable!!!
Bobby Darin may have owned it once, but it looks to me like you have a long-term lease, if not an option to buy. Nice work!
I LOVED it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ((clapping madly))
You’re great, Larry!
Boy, that just made my morning, Mr. Jones.
Love-love-loved it. Fun to sing and dance with you again! Bravo!
Okay, I just did one…sort of.
Dude! This is precisely why, even though I appreciate the efficacy of Capitalism, I also seriously dig the idea that no one really Owns anything.
That was Hot, dawg!

Don’t be so modest. That was wonderful. And as soon as I can take a break from re-architecting this thing I’m integrating into the new visionary project I’m working on, I’m gonna link to it.
Move over Kevin Spacey! I think you should’ve played Bobby Darrin in the movie.
What fun! That was excellent!
You are all too kind. And you’ll all be glad to know that thanks to some experimental meds and intensive rehab I am getting over my obsession with that song. I no longer ask people in the lunch room at work “Didja hear about Louie Miller?” or snap at folks in the supermarket “Hey! The line forms on the right, Babe!”
But I still hope one day to be as pretentious as Kevin Spacey.

Dear Larry Jones
Great job! I just have one two-part question, Who is that man in the mirror and what is da measure of a man? I am visiting with Tank Barstow. He has made this connection. I am so glad to hear that you and Mrs. Jones are doing well. Tank said he’ll call you to set a date for bowling.
Ya know, as a long time Darin fan and the owner of a Darin website, I gotta tip my hat to you. Certainly, Bobby’s rendition is the definitive one, and the reason so many people have since recorded the tune. But your reading shows real swing, depth and talent. Far too many people miss the point that you need to throw some of yourself into a song like this. Nice work, indeed!
Who’da thunk that a song about killing women with a knife could be such a delightful romp?!
