|||||"jump in the line" - harry belafonte||]|
today is my dad's birthday. i could talk for weeks about how much i love the guy. but suffice to say, he's the tops in my book.
he made a mix CD for BC when we were last up visiting. seems BC likes some of the music that he likes. it's a lot of Beach Boys classics, "tomorrow" from annie, "rawhide", and BC's absolute favorite, "jump In the line," a calypso classic by harry belafonte that is known in our house as "shake, shake, shake senora." BC, as well as her cousin Jake, absolutely groove on this ricky-ricardo-gone-wild-type tune.
so, if anyone wonders where i got my ability and inclination to make extremely eclectic mix tapes, one need look no further than my dear old dad :-)
