Here's a dance you can do on a dime

This is one of the dirtiest records I’ve ever heard. And it’s the cleaned up version!

Here’s the story from Jerry Leiber:

"We came in with "The Slime" and Jerry Wexler said "Man, that's a very noxious title. Please don't do that."

"We said, "But it's a send up. They're doing the Mashed Potato and the Slop. We want to top the Slop with the Slime!" He said, "I don't think you have to do that." So we changed the song to "The Climb." And in the end, it didn't really make much sense."

Here's a safe for airplay version. The horns make it worth hearing.
