Hey, Mezz, I've got that song by The Andrews Sisters w/Danny Kaye. Did Frank have a different cut? Bob

Mezz; OK, at that stage of his career I can picture Frank singing "Civilization" - but LOUIE PRIMA???? He might as well be singing "Stand By Your Man"!

Another nomination - "Yummy Yummy Yummy", recorded by the Ohio Express, later covered by The Archies."

Yummy, Yummy, Yummy, I got love in my tummy
And I feel like a-lovin you
Love, you're such a sweet thing
Good enough to eat thing
And it's just a-what I'm gonna do

Ooh love to hold ya
Ooh love to kiss ya
Ooh love I love it so
Ooh love you're sweeter
Sweeter than sugar
Ooh love
I wont let you go

Yummy, Yummy, Yummy, I got love in my tummy
And as silly as it may seem
The lovin' that you re giving
Is what keeps me livin'
And your love is like peaches and cream

Kind-a like sugar
Kind-a like spices
Kind-a like, like what you do
Kind-a sounds funny
But your love honey
And honey, I love you

Ba, da, ba, da, da , da, da
Ba, da, da, da, da, da . . .

Yummy, Yummy, Yummy, I got love in my tummy
That your love can satisfy
Love, you're such a sweet thing
Good enough to eat thing
And sweet thing, that ain't no lie

I love to hold ya
I love to kiss ya
Ooh love, I love it so
Ooh love, you're sweeter
Sweeter than sugar
Ooh love, I wont let you go

Ba, da, ba, da, da , da, da
Ba, da, da, da, da, da . . .

Sweet thing, yummy yummy
Sweet thing
Sweet thing, yummy yummy
Sweet thing

It's easier for me to picture Louie Prima singing it than Sinatra or the Andrews sisters. He was great with humorous tunes.

Oh, don't get me wrong, I LIKE Louie! "Angelina" is one of my all time favorites! I just can't picture the contrast there would be between his rendition and the one that I'm used to. I wonder which was the original version?

AAAAARRRRRGGGGGHHHHHHHH!!!!!! The ARCHIES!!!!I hope the members of that group were treated very poorly for the rest of their lives for subjecting us to that song! Used properly, is could have been a very inhumane form of torture. Had it been released 25 years earlier it could have fallen into the hands of the Nazi's and ended up being another charge, punishable by death, at the war crimes trials at Nuremburg. Naturally, the defendants would have said they didn't want to play it.....they were just following orders, but deep down inside they knew that their fate was sealed. Now, for sure, they had a date with the end of a rope! Btw, I HATE THAT SONG!!!!!!!!!
