In 1955, the year this recording was released, Eisenhower was in his first term.
We can be reasonably certain that The Platters weren't singing about "Ike":
Don't look to me for quips. Only got as far as pg.167, Don DeLillo's: Mao II

Freddie's voice was epic
Ron when I was eight, I had dinner with Ike and Mamie at the Copper Kettle Restaurant in Chambersberg, PA I was friends with their granddaughter Jeanie who was my friend at sleepaway camp. My parents did not come visit me for parents day and they felt sorry for me and brung me along. I can still remember how nice they were. Too bad at age eight, I wasn't informed enough to pump them for dirt!
This don't have to do much with nothing, but as far as I'm concerned Ben E. King, who I adore, needs to give this song to Tracy (who I also adore) because she OWNS it.
Watching this video, it's easy to see how so many people once thought Freddy was just another hetero rock dude.
Did you know that Brian May, who wrote "Fat Bottom Girls", had his PhD in astrophysics and that the asteroid 52665 Brianmay was named after him for his work with NASA?
No, I did not know that, probably because you just now made it up. Otoh, Rob "Assless Chaps" Halford (the other lead contender in the rock-n-roll "Who Knew He Was Gay" sweepstakes), earned a master's degree for Applied Pseudo-Freudian Symbolism in Gothic Literature while serving a 6 year sentence for making this video -
Brian May is for real
I just looked it up but only to get documentation. I already knew that about him.
