HORNIN' IN TRT TRIO / ZIPGUN CATTLE / VIBE

- song / writer-composer / singer
- song and singer both incorporate words with food-name connotations
- this song has been recorded many times, and the singer mentioned here - pretty much a one-hit wonder - released it over sixty years after the original

CHA MILCH REB / EVEN NORM /AMA JINNA

1. Song / Composer-lyricist / Cover artist(s)
2. It's another song about something edible.
3. The composer-lyricist recorded it in 1953, but that cut was not released until 1969.
4. The song has been covered more than once. The cover in the scramble is from the '80s.
5. Even if you like the cover--as indeed you might--nothing comes close to the original, IMHO.
