1. Iko Iko – Dixie Cups

Iko Iko is a New Orleans classic about two Mardi Gras Indian tribes. The Dixie Cups had a huge hit in 1964 with Chapel Of Love. The following year they were in a recording session with the legendary writers/producers Lieber & Stoller. During a break the gals were goofing off with drum sticks, Coke bottles and ash trays singing a song they heard from their grandmother. All three gals were related. Two sisters and a cousin. Leiber & Stoller knew a great sound when they heard one. This turned out to be their next hit single. They still perform and I have heard them do this song many times in their native New Orleans.

    Another winner!! Impossible to sit still with “Iko Iko” in any form. “Jungle Bandstand” lifted me, a real kick, imagined purple elephants line dancing the Twist. (?!?!?!) Love the accents of Cajun & reggae in the mix, too – nice spice throughout your Aunt Terri Tunes series!! :-) What a magnificent gift for kids of all ages!
