My Name Is Mr. T - click & listen

It was the 1980's.

It's hard to say why my brother Hugh and I were so obsessed with Mr. T. I think it was just because everyone was obsessed with Mr. T. Aren't you?

I was equally obsessed with Rockwell's hit single "Somebody's Watching Me". So, when Motown released this seminal track on a 45RPM record, with the instrumental version on the B-side, it was clear that Rockwell and Mr. T. were ripe for the spoofing.

Is Mr. T, indeed, the IRS?
