A gutsy, danceable swing tune – just a hint of throat in Kay Starr’s voice to make it sexy, even though here she’s playing older sister, thumping you between the shoulders, telling you to pick yourself up. I’ve got a cold today and I appreciate it – thanks Kay! I wonder if this style seemed dated in 1953 – to my ignorant ears it sounds a very typical swing tune and (with the benefit of foresight) there’s not much coming up that sounds like it. But to my knowing 2003 ears it sounds a lot more modern than the songs that surround it.
