I'm Just a Gigolo : Betty Boop -vs- Louis Prima

Listen to the drum back-beat during the chorus.

Here is a largely unrecognized influence in the evolution of rock and roll.

Who gives a darn about the video. The song is just so cool.

  1. Great song. Excellent combination of vocals and music. I guess the influence on today's rock is obvious to me, but how many young kids know about Harlem, New Orleans, St. Louis, or Chicago? They probably couldn't even tell you what CBGBs was! This version is better than Diamond Dave's, but his video destroyed this one.

  2. The only thing that we can do is spread the word.

    Smart move not to contradict me on this one.
