Song of the Day: Banana Boat

Today’s song is Banana Boat by Harry Belafonte.

Calypso/Mento.
I couldn’t resist. These two songs are iconic staples of ‘possession’ in media.

It’s the largest earworm that exists in my mind. Few things are ever as catchy.

Lift six foot, seven foot, eight foot bunch.

We all know why you’re here: Beetlejuice. Beetlejuice. Beetlejuice.

This goofy scene actually freaked me out when I was little, but I’ve grown to absolutely adore it.
I can’t imagine how much fun the cast must have had filming this scene.
