Musings On 20th Century Pop Culture by Psychotronic Paul
Oh my...that last one is pedophile paradise. Never realized how double-entendrish were the lyrics to Oh Little Playmate, a song popular as a clapping game when I was a wee bairn. "Climb up my apple tree, look down my rain barrel, slide down my cellar door." Sigh.In the second Soundie, I could swear that one of the guys behind the wheel is a young Jack Klugman. Did anyone from Soundies ever make it to feature films and fame?
You sure set me up for a Michael Jackson reference with that first line, Carol.While Soundies tended to feature more entertainers on the way down than on the way up, there are lots of legendary jazz and r&b musicians who made 'em, as well as such comedy acts as Spike Jones & The City Slickers.Don't remember if I showed you the Soundie "Princess Papooly's Papaya". That has such great lines as "they always kknow just what she charges" and "why don't you have a piece of her PAPAYA - 'cuz she likes to give it away!"
