Song of the day: M.A.S.H.- Suicide Is Painless


It could be some time ago that you heard this tune, since it is not really played a lot on the radio these days. I hear the tune almost every week, since I’m seeing the adventures of Hawkeye, colonel Blake, Frank, major Houlihan and Trapper for the first time on a DVD. The single that was made for the movie was based on the MASH tune, and was written by Johnny Mandel, who did the music, and his 14 year old son Mike, who wrote the lyrics. For his son, this was not bad, since he would earn more than a million dollars with this song. Not bad for five minutes of writing ‘stupid’ lyrics. It would eventually be a number one hit in the UK… Enjoy
