Tiny Tim Video: Living in the Sunlight, Loving in the Moonlight

I'm sort of stunned that this is my first Tiny Tim reference on this here blog.  For shame!  I should let everyone know that I LOVE Tiny Tim.  I used to watch him on Laugh-in when I was a kid and he blew my mind.  I even have a "God Bless Tiny Tim" t-shirt somewhere, I should link to that.  Hmm... shoot.  I don't see it for sale anywhere, but look at this Tiny Tim Shirt.

Anyway, I'm getting distracted.  I started this post to talk about a rad Youtube video I found of Tiny Tim performing "Living in the Sunlight, Loving in the Moonlight" on Australian TV.  This appears to be right at his prime.  If you've watched a lot of Tiny Tim videos, you might notice that when he plays with any sort of accompaniment, he sometimes gets a little off track.  I think he just spent much of his career playing solo that he sometimes forgets that he can't change tempo or insert random breaks in the songs (to do hilarious gestures or faces) without derailing the orchestra.  But, in this video he's rock steady! Enjoy!
