Blast your mid-week blues away with the lovely Ray Barretto, who is our wonderful provider of today’s SOTD! Aw, thanks Ray!

Taken from his 1963 album On Fire Again (Encendido otra vez), ‘Mr. Blah Blah’ finds the Puerto Rican Latin-Jazz (or Jazz-Latin) legend in a playful and silly mood.  Often dismissed as a nonsense novelty tune alongside Barretto’s 1962 breakthrough pop hit ‘El Watusi’ as well as the track ‘El Bantu’, this is actually a funny and light Latin number that always cheers me up when I’m down in the dumps. It’s wacky and loveable charm is too darn cute to resist.

I love you Mr. Blah Blah!
