Engelbert Humperdinck

If you’re looking to win an extremely specific series of bar bets, here are some real, Google-approved facts about “Release Me” crooner and Elvis buddy Engelbert Humperdinck that sound completely made up: He grew up in Madras, India (his father was stationed there during World War II); he first became famous for impersonating Jerry Lewis; he released a song called “Lesbian Seagull” that appeared on the soundtrack to Beavis and Butt-Head Do America; he changed his name to Engelbert Humperdinck (his real name is Arnold George Dorsey). His latest album, released last year, finds the “King of Romance” giving the full Humperdinck treatment to songs by Willie Nelson (“Crazy”), Bruno Mars (“Just the Way You Are”) and Ed Sheeran (“Photograph”) and dueting with his 9-year-old granddaughter. Fittingly, it’s titled The Man I Want to Be. He’s clearly done it exactly the way he wanted and a way no one else would ever even think to try.
