Covers: Hotcha Cornia

“Hotcha Cornia” was performed by Spike Jones & His City Slickers in the 1943 film Thank Your Lucky Stars. I didn’t know much about Jones other than the reference to him in “Up On Cripple Creek” by The Band but this is great. It looks improvised but must have been painstakingly choreographed. The song is a fusion of “Song of the Volga Boatmen” and “Dark Eyes”.
