"Be-Bop-A-Lula," Gene Vincent
Misheard Lyrics:
Be-bop-a-lula bakmi bakso.
Original Lyrics:
Be-bop-a-lula I don't mean maybe.
Story about this misheard lyric by: Wisnu Aji: I don't mean why foods are sung by a radio announcer? Maybe forgot many lyrics of this song or maybe he hungry. About this song: Originally written in 1955 when Vincent was recuperating from a motorcycle crash at the Naval Hospital. Later, he wrote the tune while Donald Graves wrote the words to this song. The phrase "Be-Bop-A-Lula" is similar to Helen Humes' #3 R&B Chart hit "Be-Baba-Leba" in 1945, which became a bigger hit when recorded by Lionel Hampton as "Hey! Ba-Ba-Re-Bop". This phrase, or something very similar, was widely used in jazz circles in the 1940s, giving its name to the bebop style, and possibly being ultimately derived from the shout of "Arriba! Arriba!" used by Latin American bandleaders to encourage band members. The song as performed with his band, The Blue Caps, was successful on three singles charts: peaking at #7 on Billboard's Pop Chart, #8 on R&B Chart, and also made the top ten on the C&W Best Seller chart peaking at #5. In the UK Singles Chart, at #16 in August 1956. In April 1957, the record company announced that over 2 million copies had been sold to date. Because it drew comparisons to Elvis Presley musically and vocally, it listed as #103 on Rolling Stone's "500 Greatest Songs of All Time".
