I think I heard that somewhere recently that Moose the Mooche had something to do with Charlie Parker's dope dealer...Relaxin' at the Camarillo tickled me a little too.

Anyone know any other story's behind other songs that I didn't recognize?

Not a title but until recently and since the 60's I had been singing the opening verse of the Ska classic " The Israelites " by Desmond Decker

" Get up in the morning bacon for breakfast" instead of the correct " Get up in the morning slaving for bread sir" Desmond's Jamaican accent had defied my ears.
What is strange is that I worked with Desmond Decker briefly in the 70s but still sang the bacon line.

Don't know of the story behind them, but Louis Armstrong played a couple of really cool titles. "Struttin With Some BBQ", "Potato Head Blues", and "Aint Nobody Gonna Get None of my Jelly Role".

I was a at jam session one night and on the mic the leader said:

"And now we're going to play a tune called Butt Love."

I think he mixed up "Beautiful Love" and "But Beautiful" and somehow combined them. One of the funniest jam session moments I've seen.
I worry about myself sometimes, this one's had me sniggering since i read it yesterday.... when am i ever going to grow up!!?

Thanks for the giggles! A somewhat different tack: substitute the word "lunch" for every time "love" appears in a title. Always gives me a few laughs.:)

Not a song title, but some friends had a blues band in high school called "Bend Over Junior and the Cracks". Always was one of my favorites.
