Talk:Turn Around

From This Might Be A Wiki

The chorus seems to echo the opening melody of the Perry Como song of the same name & somewhat related theme. Coincidence? --Nehushtan (talk) 08:35, 8 November 2016 (EST)

I think there might be an influence there! The guys have shown an awareness of swinging '60s music before. Witness "It Was A Very Good Year", "Concrete And Clay", "Maybe I Know", and "Walking My Cat Named Dog", plus lyrical references to things like "It's a Small World", "Pictures of Matchstick Men", and so on. Perry Como seems like the kind of square singer Linnell would enjoy skewering via this bizarre song. Though I feel like it's worth pointing out that Como didn't write "Turnaround"--it was Harry Belafonte and others [1]. --MisterMe (talk) 16:22, 8 November 2016 (EST)
