I wonder if any jazz or novelty-song aficionados “out there” have ever heard a song whose origin and artist I’ve been wondering about for years:
As a kid, I enjoyed the “novelty” aspect of it and just tolerated the music, or ignored it. Many years later, though, I heard the song again, and was really enjoying the (jazzy, perhaps R&B;or swing) music when all of a sudden I recognized it as the knee-slapping song of my youth.
The “hook” of this song: At the end of each verse, the band comes to a stop, and somebody belches.

It is nice to hear novelty songs every now and then. Great old songs really never die.Commenting is not available in this content area entry.
