Queen of Hollywood Novelty Numbers

There's no subtlety about the musical style of Betty Hutton....her movie numbers usually started out deceptively sweet and docile, and quickly deconstructed into her trademark high energy howling, growling, mugging, and hollering. If you collect goofy 40s novelty songs, you might enjoy the collection of Betty Hutton music from Kelly's Lounge Soundz--titles such as Who Kicked the Light Plug, the 40s jive-talking Murder He Says, and Arthur Murray Taught Me Dancing in a Hurry.
