Danny Kaye

Though he was really more of a movie star and his music was recorded long before I was born, Danny Kaye’s singing is a sound that takes me straight back to middle school, when I used to stay up all night watching AMC (back when it was American Movie Classics and played American movie classics) for the Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire and Danny Kaye marathons.

Gamer and superfan of Fallout 3 that I am, it pains me that most of my contemporaries will know Danny Kaye, if they know him at all, as the guy who sang that super racist bongo song on Galaxy News Radio.

Two more songs behind the cut. 

P.S. I know Happy Times was also in Fallout 3, but that version was sung by Bob Crosby.
