    My father liked listening to the Ink Spots, so I got an appreciation for them very early in my life. I hadn't thought about them recently, though, so thanks for the memories. I lost my father in 1998, so listening to this was a pleasure. Thanks for posting it!

    They are cool but I remember when I checked them out that many of their songs seemed almost literally the same song w different words.

    That's true.

    i think i just find them soothing in the background of my head.

    could be the Tylenol III i'm eating for a wretched ear infection I have going on though

    thanks. I haven't been in this much pain since the Septic Bursitis i had in my knee years ago. I had no idea how painful Swimmers Ear could be. I got it in both ears and they feel like they're going to explode.

    That could describe a ton of '50s and early '50 Doo Wop as well. :D

    I used to listen to them quite often whilst traversing wastelands and defeating mutants.

    I cannot believe nobody has yet posted their greatest hit...especially with all the coffee discussions we have here.

    My neighbor lives in a very nice house from the early 20's.
    We sit outside at the pool and she puts these guys on.
    Instant time machine.
    I love them.
