You Better Watch Out!

In 1934, Eddie Cantor debuted this Christmas classic on his radio hour. It was an instant hit, and immediately sold 30,000 records within 24 hours and an order for 500,000 copies of the sheet music.

This song bounced around on a number of charts when the Bluebird Record version was recorded by George Hall and his Orchestra hit the air waves.

This John Fredrick Coots and Haven Gillespie tune has been recorded by over 200 artists.

While I couldn’t find any reason for the composition,  I did find this wonderful 1932 rendition from Tommy Dorsey.

That should have you dancing! 

These great gift ideas for Christmas should have you dancing too!

  1. As always, a fun read and an aural delight! The version I most remember is the well worn vinyl of Burl Ives singing Christmas tunes when I was a small child. My parents adored Burl Ives (: All of your picks are mighty delightful, too. Am away from the computer for a good part of the day but will be glad to share the post and the items wherever I can when i get back! Thanks, again. And belly rubs and treats from the Desert Dog to Hurricane Harry.
