Something for the weekend…

Here’s a little ditty to keep you entertained in an S&G manner wherever you may go, a lovely rendition of the pre-war hit ‘Flat-Foot Floogie’ by Slim Gaillard and Slam Stewart, The Hoosier Hot Shots in 1938

The original song was called “Flat Foot Floozie”, with the ‘floy-floy’ being slang for a venereal disease. The word ‘floozie’ was changed into ‘floogie’ to allow it be to played on the radio!

While our modern pop stars like to think that they’re breaking down taboos, it’s hard to imagine Rihanna singing a ditty about having an unfortunate itch!
