Loving You Has Made Me Bananas
|“||From the Hotel Sheets in Downtown Plunketville
The Publican Broadcasting Company presents:
The Music of Pete DeAngelis and his Loyal Plunketvillevanians!
Here in the beautiful gold, yella, copper, steel, iron ballroom
of the Hotel Sheets in Downtown Plunketville,
Overlooking the uptown section of Downtown Pottstown!
Stay with us, won’t you, and enjoy the sweetest music
This side of the Monongahela River!
One mile high, two and one half blocks from the center of Old New Orleans!
Ah, there’s gaiety, merriment and dancing in the Hotel Sheets nightly!
Now, to get things underway,
Pete and his Loyal Banditos play a medley of old standard favorites,
Commencing with “Your Red Scarf Matches Your Eyes”,
“Close Cover Before Striking”,
“Your Father Had The Shipfitter Blues”,
and “Loving You Has Made Me Bananas”.
This picture and lovely lyric portrayed vocally by Dickie Ryan.
Oh, your red scarf matches your eyes
It was first released in 1968 on ABC Records as a single with "Forgive Me My Love" on the B-side, some two years after "Winchester Cathedral" had triggered a revival of this musical form that had fallen out of fashion in the 1950s. It was also released in a stereo LP in 1968 (ABC Records ABCS-648) with additional legitimate 1930s and 1940s hits sung in the same style ("Object of My Affection", "Painted Tainted Rose", "Ti-Pi-Tin", "This Is Forever", "Amapola", "Postage Machine", "Careless", "Little Shoemaker", "Forgive Me My Love" and "Little Sir Echo").
