HollyWood Polka

HollyWood Polka (2:43)

This is one of those songs that sounds way better when you don't know the whole story behind it. In this case, all that's really known is that it was intended for a lyric writing contest of some sort. But taken on its own as a finished product, it's certainly way better than it could ever be with a complete set of lyrics. There's something very hypnotic and suggestive about the repeated line "In Hollywood..." that just keeps me in stitches even though I really don't like polkas very much.
