Episode 7: Laughing at Life, track by track! "Everybody Loves My Baby"
IN THIS EPISODE:
We continue our song-by-song exploration of our newly released album, Laughing at Life, with a chat about "Everybody Loves My Baby." We talk about the Boswell Sisters' version, our own original lyrics, and special guest Anat Cohen.
ABOUT THOSE ORIGINAL LYRICS...
The Duchess original lyrics in the middle of this tune fly right by, but trust us: this is a #girlongirlharmony hip hop battle. We pay homage to the Boswell Sisters while staking our claim in the pantheon of close harmony groups. Check 'em out!
How did the Bozzies do the rapid-fire scattin' with their "yes, siggle-dirs" when they double-dogged their Latin, there were so many words just a-flyin', and a-rat-a-tattin', how?
Vet, Martha, Connie gave us all the heebie jeebies, said "Duchess oughta try it," but it really isn't easy, so we gotta tip our hats to the Bozzies, oh they really dazzle, wow!
Harmony and hijinks are the currency we deal in and though we love the Bozzies, honey, no we ain't a-stealin', got a style that's all our own and we know it's so appealin' here and now!
SPECIAL GUEST ANAT COHEN!
Anat's solo on "Everybody Loves My Baby" is fun, spirited, exciting, and the perfect addition to the track. Learn more about Anat Cohen and her artistry on her website.
