Just wanted to share my love of The Andrews Sisters. Some days, I think I was born in the wrong era, for in a fair number of fantasies, I am an Andrews Sister with Dean Martin and Bing Crosby on the phone, keen to duet. I also party with the Rat Pack in Vegas and boogie woogie like a beast. In other flights of fancy, I am one of The Supremes. This may explain my addiction to big hair. You know what they say... the higher the hair, the closer to heaven.
The following clip is from the 1941 film, Buck Privates. Patty Andrews is adorable.
FOUR MORE SONGS
This is one of my favourite songs in the world.
2. Shortnin' Bread
I fell in love with this when I was a little girl, after hearing Donald Duck sing it while making pancakes in an old school 1940s Disney cartoon that we had on video. Of course, the sisters do it better than the duck.
3. Beer Barrel Polka
Adore the Andrews' version, as well as Billie Holiday's.
4. Rum And Coca Cola
The fact that this was co-written by a man named Lord Invader just makes this track ten more shades of awesome. Oddly enough, it's about prostitution and booze.
