6-17-08 I’m Rambling

Posted by Sean on June 17, 2008

Actually, Shanoah, I was saving The Cat with Hands for a night when I couldn’t think of anything to post. Totally forgot about it, too.

What, you say I never actually told you I wanted to use it? Heh. Heh heh heh heh heh. Heh.

Ahem.

Anyway, I was listening to the Antique Phonograph Music Show on WFMU today, which brought back memories of an old song that they played on that show way back in 2007. It’s a wonderful 1920 song by Arthur Fields called The Little Ford Rambled Right Along (originally sung in 1915 by Billy Murray). If the name of Arthur Fields sounds familiar, and you think you’ve read it before, well, you have.

A Frankenstein’s monster car like that sounds like just the car you’d want, Shanoah.

Y’know, The Little Ford Rambled Right Along would be the perfect soundtrack for the Betty Boop cartoon Ker-Choo, available at Archive.org here and which has all sorts of automotive madness… except that, dude, someone’s already thought of that! Those somebodies were Cartoon Network, who set Ker-Choo to Soul Coughing‘s Rolling, off 1998’s El Oso (and with funky cover art by Jim Woodring) to their “Groovies” shorts.
