You gotta start off each day with a song…

There is a great bit by Bing Crosby and Jimmy Durante called, “You’ve Gotta Start Off Each Day with a Song”, which is one of the funniest things I’ve heard. It’s a song-and-banter kind of thing that was common back in the golden age of radio, but it’s great. There’s another bit with Bing and George Burns singing “It Might As Well Be Spring”, but I’ve got to say that the Bing and Jimmy bit is funnier.

I came across the song on a Bing Crosby collection I have–a 2-disc set of his “Radio Years”.
