In the Heyday of the Dr. Demento Show, an unknown to us artist (Tom T-bone Stankus) released a song called Existential Blues. It went straight to number one on the weekly Dr. D top ten. It then got pulled and they (KMET) were no longer allowed to play it until certain parts of the song were edited due to a copywrite issue - A big movie lawyer wanted money from a guy that recorded a song in his garage. So they chopped up the song and put it back on the air....and every week, my ten year old ears would yearn for the missing lines to the song....not because I thought they were great lines or from a great movie or because the line had already been pimped out in auto commercials, but rather, because to me, it was part of the song. It was the way it was supposed to be. I had not ever seen the movie, I was not going to be buying one of those cars...To me, It was a violation of our sunday evening right to enjoy a Great song. Well Here is my Tribute to Tbone and all the listeners that were ripped off weekly by the censorship of this song. The original Version of the song in its entirety - And also Giving credit to the film "Man From La Mancha" - I give you; The Existential Bluesman From La Mancha
