Engelbert Humperdinck

On the newest Snydecast Dana and Ken drop the name of Englebert Humperdinck. It's not surprising they dropped it. It's a heavy name to carry.


Anyway, it's not his real name. He was born Arnold Dorsey but he thought that name was too normal He wanted a weird name that sounded like a Muppet and a German sexual position.

Engelbert Humperdinck. It's not even easy to spell. The "C" at the end throws me off.

Here's some info from Wikipedia that I cut and pasted without reading:

Engelbert Humperdinck (born Arnold George Dorsey; 2 May 1936) is an English pop singer. He is best known for his songs "Release Me" and "The Last Waltz", both singles topping the UK music charts in 1967, and selling in large-enough numbers to help the singer achieve "the rare feat of scoring two million sellers in one year." In North America, he is also known for his 1976-hit single, "After the Lovin'." Humperdinck is regarded by music critics to be "one of the finest middle-of-the-road balladeers around."

Here's a YouTube video that claims to be one of his albums. I didn't watch it. Hopefully halfway through it becomes some weird German Muppet sex romp:
