Trouble! Mass Hysteria! So's Your Old Man!

Feast your eyes and ears on one of the great pool defamation songs of all time.

Wow. What a production. Do you know when that was made Mike? I wonder what kind of an impact this had on the game... I wonder who wrote it and if it was part of some intentional social engineering project, or just an innocent song.

"Trouble" is from the 1957 musical called "The Music Man". Click here for more info on it.

If it had any negative effect on pool, it was short lived. Four years later the movie "The Hustler" gave great new life to the game.
