A Guilt-Free Banana Split Treat For Your Monday

This week's Music Monday is completely for fun -- no message-in-song -- just pure musical fun from one of my very favorite old-time legends, Louis Prima.
You may recognize his voice from unlikely sources such as the theme song from Disney's The Jungle Book. His sound is upbeat and fun and just what many of us just may need this Monday.
So from me to you, I give you this calorie-free treat -- Banana Split For My Baby from Louis Prima. This song has been played many, many times in the offices of The Beautiful Life -- cranked up loud with packages being shipped out to its fun sounds. Hope you enjoy!

Ruth, thank you! I love your music on Mondays! I love Louis Prima and it was such fun to stop and listen to that great music. There was no one like him, was there? Have a great day.

I love Louis Prima..another great artist that my dad used to listen to. I remember listening to Louis and Keely Smith in my Dad's car whenever we went somewhere. Another great old song {done by many artist} is Tu,Vuo,Fa,L,Americano {there's a great version of it on the Talented Mr. Ripley soundtrack}...it's a great old school song that also reminds me so much of my dad. Being italian, we always had lots of italian music playing at our home.

I adore Louis Prima and his sidekick Keely! What a great choice.

I remember Louie & Keely too. She used to be so dead pan. My dad used to sing along with him. Fun memories.
