Tune o’ the Day (Walkin’ My Baby Back Home Edition)

Well last night the hardwriting staff was listening to Paris jazz station TSF (because our stereo system is totally shot) when who should come on but Nat Cole singing Walkin’ My Baby Back Home.

Representative sample:

 

Our favorite lyrics:

We stop for a while, she gives me a smile
And snuggles her head on my chest
We start in to pet and that’s when I get
Her powder all over my vest

After I kinda straighten my tie
She has to borrow my comb
Once kiss then we continue again
Walkin’ my baby back home

Nobody did that song better.

P.S. Turns out the hardlistening staff already wrote about this vocal here. Don’t mean to be repetitive, but Nat Cole will do that to you.

    Care to name a couple of candidates in today’s music world that might have the lasting power of Nat King Cole?

    That was a glorious time for music.

      There are some good ones – like Dianne Reeves – but no giants like Cole or (personal favorite) Anita O’Day (pig Latin for “dough”).

      You’re right, Mudge – that WAS a glorious time for music. I’m lucky my old man kept the dial on WNEW in New York (Make Believe Ballroom, Milkman’s Matinee, and etc.).

      Nothing like that now.
