Fascinatin' Rhythm #2050: Animal Crackers, 12/12/20
Animal Crackers Animals range from the real to the make believe. In songs, they often appear as part of a juvenile strain—either sung by a child, or sung by an adult who’s imitating a child. Either way, there’s something in them that borders on the goofy, especially when they come from the 1920s. Few tender ballads but a lot of exuberant comedy in songs about the beasts, the birds, and the bees.
