Listen To: Gabbin’ Blues

“Here come ol’ evil chick always telling everybody she come from Chicago. Got Mississippi written all over her!”

That’s the Gabbin’ Blues by Big Maybelle & Rose Marie McCoy. Step back to 1952 and give a listen:

Song: The Glow-Worm (1952)

I love the Mills Brothers. And so should you!

“Glow, little glow worm, fly of fire,
Glow like an incandescent wire,
Glow for the female of the species,
Turn on the AC and the DC,
This night could use a little brightnin’
Light up, you little old bug of lightnin’
When you gotta glow, you gotta glow,
Glow, little glow worm, glow!”

A Song That Should Be In Fallout 4

Since it wasn’t in Fallout 3…

Yep, that’s my YouTube channel. 🙂

Here is a smattering of the lyrics:

“Glow, little glow worm, fly of fire,
Glow like an incandescent wire,
Glow for the female of the species,
Turn on the AC and the DC,

This night could use a little brightnin’
Light up, you little old bug of lightnin’

When you gotta glow, you gotta glow,
Glow, little glow worm, glow!”

And here is more about the Mills Brothers, who are one of my favorite vocal groups.
