Chattanooga Choo Choo
Well if you’re going to have a city-themed song stuck in your head all the time, I suppose this is the one to have. I can’t help it! There’s a neon sign I see from my porch that says “Choo Choo”— (or sometimes just “oo Choo”, or sometimes “Choo Ch”, or sometimes “h Choo”)…. And there’s just something so inviting about that little chromatic walkup on the words, “Pardon me boys,” that gets the tune going in my head before I have a chance to stop it. I’ve heard Glenn Miller’s rendition, of course, but I’ve never seen this little production before today. How awesome is this?!! And how about that slippery dance floor routine at the end? Wonderful stuff.
Oh, and by the way, if you’re a really cool person and if you ever find yourself going to visit (or stay at) the Choo Choo, drop me an email, because I really do live four blocks from there, and I really would meet you for a beer or a walk around town.
