Trivia:

World War II audiences embraced Spike and his City Slickers ("the Band who played for fun") for their delicious parodies of popular songs; some of their best being "Der Fuehrer's Face", "Cocktails for Two", which included a chorus of hiccupping, and "You Always Hurt the One You Love", which was dominated by a series of shootings, hangings and poisonings.
