Song of the Day #442
Song of the Day: Satan Takes a Holiday is a 1917 song composed by Larry Clinton. It was recorded in a jazzy rendition by the Tommy Dorsey orchestra. Jazz was often condemned as the Devil's Music, after all. I loved hearing my Uncle Sam play this one on violin when I was a kid. Just in time for Halloween, listen to an audio clip of this spooky favorite here. And a Happy Halloween to one and all.
