Happy Birthday Fats Domino

Today back in 1928 Fats Domino was born down in the Lower Ninth Ward in New Orleans.  We celebrated him in our Masters Series back in November and have wrote about him before, however today we wanted to wish him a Happy One. 

Such a great artist, his songs are timeless, enjoy a few this evening: 

"I'm Walkin'"

"Walking To New Orleans"

"Jambalaya"


We will end with "Blueberry Hill"

I have a distinct memory of listening to this song very early on in my schooling (kindergarten I believe) which would make it one of the first songs I heard out side of my family's play list which included Irish Folk, Beatles, Soul, Doo-Wop, Jazz and of course Sesame Street music they played for me. Wow Not sure I had thought about in decades...ain't tunes amazing?!?!  Anyways...Happy Birthday Fats.
