Mr. Joshua sang this song on Idol the other night, he did okay. James is a tough act to follow, I think it takes a certain courage just to try.
It got me thinking, as most things do. 1964 was the release year for the original, "It's a Man's Man's Man's Man's World," four man's.
One of my favorite movies came out in 1963, "It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World." It's a frantic comedy, featuring a Who's Who of Hollywood comedians from every period. So how much of a coincidence is the similarities of the titles? No coincidence at all, I think, strictly cause and effect. Odd movie to influence the title of such a serious song though.
