30-Day Song Challenge, Day 14 - A Song that No One Would Expect You to Love
Based on my age, I’m quite sure no one would expect me to love Big Band music, but I do. I really do! It doesn’t matter by how many decades it predates me, good music is good music. Bing Crosby, Dick Haymes, Dinah Shore, Billie Holiday, Glenn Miller--bring it on!
One of the songs I love is “Paper Doll”, by the Mills Brothers. It’s a rollicking, fun song about a man who is fed up with the vagaries of human females (“dolls”) and who thus swears he’s going to buy a paper doll, who will stay true to him. Or, as he puts it, “And all the flirty, flirty guys / With their flirty, flirty eyes / Will have to flirt with dollies that are real”. It’s hilarious and cute!
Here's the last one, in case you missed it!
