Swinging with a star - with Danny Kaye, Nat King Cole and Harry Belafonte (twice)

Welcome to a new issue of Swinging with a Star!

The song of today is dealing with looks for this is this (and next) month's theme on this blog. To be specific: It deals with a guy declaring that he is ugly - and his sons making fun of him.

 Frankly: I was looking for the Robert Mitchum version of this song I am featuring here today.. Well, I didn't find it. But what I found is quite great too.

I like the fact that the guys singing this song appear to be extraordinary good-looking.. 

Have the great Harry Belafonte singing it twice.. with just wonderful partners! Love all my guests to day!!  - and yes: I listen to Mr. Belafonte and Mr. Cole quite a lot..

First we have Harry Belafonte with Nat King Cole:

and then with the wonderful Danny Kaye:

And I also like that all three men in these videos appear to have a real good time. 

And shaking your hips to Calypso music can't be wrong (unless your doctor says so..)

I hope you'll have a great weekend!

(Just by the way:
 you still can vote on the poll.. Thanks to the five persons who did yet!)

Thank you for listening - and swinging!

Yours very well and truly



  1. Ooh, I love Nat King Cole. What a fabulous voice he had.

    I don't know much about Harry Belafonte, except that he sang a bit in "Odds Against Tomorrow,"---a film in which he co-starred with Robert Ryan.

    Danny Kaye is always a delight.

  2. Thank you for your comment, Patti! I love Nat King Cole, too.. And I completely agree on Danny Kaye with you. :")


I really appreciate your comments - I'll read them all and if I can think of an answer I'll post it. :")
