Song of the Day: Dean Martin, “Just A Little Bit South of North Carolina”

"Just A Little Bit South of North Carolina" was written by Sunny Skylar, Bette Cannon and Arthur Shaftel and originally recorded in 1941 by Gene Krupa and His Orchestra with Anita O’Day doing the vocal. Dean Martin recorded it for his 1955 album Swingin’ Down Yonder, his first LP for Capitol Records (Capitol re-released the album in 1963 with the title Southern Style). It’s a bouncy, light-hearted tune, no matter who does it.

    1. I hadn’t either. I was banging around YouTube looking for songs with directions in them, and found it. I like the song. Anita O’Day’s version is good, too.
