Personal Quote:

Every time I write a song I keep a mental picture of a housewife with her hands in soapy weather, listening to the radio. I try to figure out how to get her hands out of the dishwater to turn up the volume, to hear my song. See more »

Trivia:

Got the idea for the 1958 hit "The Chipmunk Song" ("Christmas, Don't Be Late") from his youngest son, Adam, who began asking when Christmas was coming in July. Bagdasarian began to wonder whether other children were thinking the same thing, and these thoughts evolved into what's become a Yuletide classic and a #1 hit when it was released. See more »
