May the Bird of Paradise (Fly Up Your Nose)
Little Jimmy is the king of the country novelty song. With a slight frame and a penchant for rhinestone-studded Nudie suits, Dickens is one of the most recognizable characters in country music. 16 Biggest Hits includes Dickens' best, like the 1965 pop crossover hit "May the Bird of Paradise (Fly Up Your Nose)." Though they are quite funny, songs like "Hillbilly Fever," "Take an Old Cold Tater (And Wait)" and "Out Behind the Barn" reflect hard times and country folks making the most of what they had. It's this serious side that adds substance to Dickens' novelty songs, making them timeless.
