Classics from the 30’s to the 50’s

Posted by shanoah on June 17, 2008

Continuing on a post from earlier this week, thought I’d feature a few classic songs from the 30’s to the 50’s.

My Girl’s Pussy – Harry Roy (1931)

For anyone thinking that all the songs I’ve posted loaded with sexual references are a new thing, here’s Harry Roy singing a song about his girlfriend’s “Pussy” back in 1931.

Mairzy Deoats – Merry Macs (1944)

On a lighter topic, 13 years later, we have this classic number. “Mares eat the oats, and does eat oats, and little lambs eat ivy”.

And, yes, this is the same group as “Papa, Don’t Preach To Me”.

Dat’s Love – Carmen Jones (1954)

And here we have a clip from the musical, Carmen Jones.

While the Carmen is being played by the amazing Dorothy Dandridge, the singing is actually Marilyn Horne. Which, while Marilyn does the singing well, is a shame.

Dorothy was quite a good singer in her own right, as well as an actor. She really deserved more time in the spotlight.
