Let The Good Times Roll - Buckwheat Zydeco

 

For the sake of clarification:  There are multiple songs with this title.  This one is a Zydeco cover of the 1946 classic written by Louis Jordan.  I also seem to remember a version of this song being on the soundtrack of The Blues Brothers movie.

Hmmm, I think it has also been song by others, but my famous Senior Moment cannot remember/lol. 

 

I see online YouTube has Bob Marley singing it too. 🤔

 

***The song is so silly, that I have to laugh no matter what is going on*** 🙃

Actually, Bob Marley didn’t sing this song. Someone mislabeled it on YouTube. Here’s the story . . .
