Todays tune "Laugh and a ½ ", is taken from D-A-D's 4th album Riskin' It All (1991) Enjoy the video and part of the lyrics!

But I became honest Mr. Mistaken. In spite of the curves my smile was makin'... Bumpers and kickers in one big stream.
I grew up in a life size pinball machine! Yeah! - They're mean!.
'Coz it's so hard to meet the eyes that I see. When I try to open up my heart... There's something inside me'n'I know it's good..
But understanding, it's misunderstood. At the end of a smile, there's a laugh'n'a 1/2
