Squeeze Box - The Who

 

I realize the line

"Mama's got a squeeze box
Daddy never sleeps at night"

 

Reeks of innuendo, but it always conjures visions of Mama playing Zydeco and Daddy dancing his heart out all night.

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.

This has probably been listed before. I watched "Despicable Me" again today and this song got me to dancing ( as near to it as I can get anyway 😊 ).

(1 comment, 2 kudos) Don't Worry Be Happy by Bobby McFerrin 1988.

 

Genres: Jazz, A Cappella, Reggae

 

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 . . .
