MOMI March 2022 SAF Songs.jpg

I can make out most of these, but there are some I can't really place. Any knowledge or possible sources of these track is good! - Shane latest?cb=20200820192427 (talk) 00:44, 13 March 2022 (UTC)

I started this playlist last year, and I'm often updating it whenever new info comes along. I'll keep an ear out for any of them. -- Tony (talk) 00:57, 13 March 2022 (UTC)
I picked out a few as being from the established suspects (Stan Freberg, Spike Jones, Eddie Lawrence). Others are one-off novelties or mainstream songs with a humorous bent. I'll get to some of those later. The ones that are utter question marks to me are "The Kids Down on the Corner" and "What Did He Say?" (possibly Bob and Ray bits?) -- Andrew Emoji-drool.gifAdminsig.png 02:07, 13 March 2022 (UTC)
So great! I couldn't make out that Vienna one (thought it said Vanilla). Two near the top I'm not sure of - "Dufo" and "Leon Bush" is what I assume they say. - Shane latest?cb=20200820192427 (talk) 02:15, 13 March 2022 (UTC)
Dufo baffled me too. The bush is "The Peony Bush," 1949 song by Meredith "Music Man" Willson and sung by Danny Kaye. -- Andrew Emoji-drool.gifAdminsig.png 02:23, 13 March 2022 (UTC)
"Dufo" is a Wally Cox recording, aka "What a Crazy Guy." It's on YouTube, and the time matches. "What Did He Say" is also known as "The Mumble Song," but I've found at least two different recordings of it, so I'm not sure which would've been used for Sam & Friends. -- Tony (talk) 03:29, 13 March 2022 (UTC)
"Lay Somethin' on the Bar" looks to be the Chuck Murphy recording, going by the time. -- Tony (talk) 04:22, 13 March 2022 (UTC)
Thanks for the Dufo ID, Tony! As a result, we now have a Wally Cox page. A couple more identifications. "When the Crab Grass Bloom Again" was a 1958 novelty recording by singer Jimmy Joyce. "Proud New Father" is a 1952 spoken routine by comedian Johnny Standley, backed by Horace Heidt's orchestra (he toured with Heidt on stage and appeared with him on TV). -- Andrew Emoji-drool.gifAdminsig.png 03:23, 14 March 2022 (UTC)
