This fun tune kept popping into my head all week. I thought I’d like to share it with you.
Okay–if you’re young, a lot of these references to current event of the early 1960s are going to slip right past you. But if you’re not so young, this’ll really bring back memories.
The trouble with topical humor is, it has a very short shelf life. Someday everybody who ever guffawed with Allan Sherman will have died out and everybody who’s left won’t know what the dickens he’s talking about.
But for the time being… oh, boy!
One comment on “More Comic Relief by Allan Sherman: ‘The Ballad of Oh Boy’”
My parents had this on vinyl and I played it over and over, not understanding one reference. Still, better than nothing.
Seltzer Boy was good, too.
