Perry Como – The Artist

Pierino Ronald “Perry” Como (1912 – 2001) was an Italian-American singer, actor and television personality. During a career spanning more than half a century, he recorded exclusively for RCA Victor for 44 years, after signing with the label in 1943. He recorded primarily vocal pop and was renowned for recordings in the intimate, easy-listening genre pioneered by multi-media star Bing Crosby. “Mr. C.”, as he was nicknamed, sold millions of records and pioneered a weekly musical variety television show. His weekly television shows and seasonal specials were broadcast throughout the world. Como was born in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania, about 20 miles (32 km) southwest of Pittsburgh. He was the seventh of ten children and the first American-born child of Pietro Como and Lucia Travaglini, who both immigrated to the US in 1910 from the Abruzzese town of Palena, Italy.

Tomboy – The Song

“Tomboy” was a 1959 hit for singer Perry Como on the RCA Victor label. It was written by Farrell and Conway. 

Men’s Underwear – The Shape

This record has been modelled into a pair of men’s underpants and a vest . Tomboy is a term used for girls or young women with masculine traits. It can include wearing androgynous or unfeminine clothing and engaging in physical sports or other activities and behaviours usually associated with boys or men. The word “tomboy” is a compound word which combines “tom” with “boy”. Though this word is now used to refer to “boy-like girls”, the etymology suggests the meaning of tomboy has changed drastically over time. In 1533, according to the Oxford Dictionary of English, “tomboy” was used to mean a “rude, boisterous or forward boy”. By the 1570s, however, “tomboy” had taken on the meaning of a “bold or immodest woman”, finally, in the late 1590s and early 1600s, the term morphed into its current meaning: “a girl who behaves like a spirited or boisterous boy; a wild romping girl.”
