I wonder how much this cover confused impressionable young male minds loitering around the spinner rack down at the drugstore in 1954 by revealing what pretty girls wear under their skirts is, apparently, an adult-sized diaper.
Today is my daughter Ella’s 2nd birthday! Some time right around her birth I started singing this “Aye ya ya ya” tune over and over… I think Eileen and I were a both a bit overwhelmed with our older two kids, knowing a third was about to arrive, so it was sort of a stabilizing chant for me, i think. Anyhow, when Mariella Mae was born it didn’t take long for that little melody to grow into a song. It’s not quite finished, but I haven’t had the inspiration to get it there just yet. Here’s a version of it I recorded back in Feb of this year.
Happy Birthday my sweet girl!
ps. I can definitely site Caetano Veloso’s version of Cucurrucucu Paloma from the film “Talk to Her” as a major influence. What an incredible performance from a true master! It gets me every time! http://youtu.be/-CsA1CcA4Z8
