The Music Goes 'Round and Around

Legbamel Not-Pop

I started out today working on my page about Danny Kaye and happened upon his lovely version of The Music Goes 'Round and Around from The Five Pennies, in which he played Red Nichols who sings the song with his polio-doomed daughter. Naturally, it brought to mind the Tommy Dorsey version of the songs with Edythe Wright, the first version I ever heard. Of course, you know that means you get a whole list of various takes on it, including those two and Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Prima. It's a goofy little song for a lazy Saturday evening. Enjoy!
