YMMV / Cab Calloway

  • Awesome Music / Ear Worm: "Minnie the Moocher". Just try not to sing along with those "hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-his" and the increasingly more complex Scatting. Call And Response Songs work, kids.
  • Face of the Band
  • Misattributed Song: Often gets credited for Louis Jordan's rendition of "Is You Is Or Is You Ain't My Baby", for some odd reason.
  • Never Live It Down: As much of an impact as he had on music, he's also notorious among jazz fans for denigrating Dizzy Gillespie's early experiments with bebop, telling him "Don't bring any of that Chinese shit in here!"
  • Signature Song: "Minnie the Moocher"
