Bananas In Pop Culture

‘THE BANANA SPLITS’ 1968~1970

‘THIRTY THOUSAND POUNDS OF BANANAS’ HARRY CHAPIN, 1974

‘NATHAN JONES’ BANANARAMA, 1987

My very first post for Tourmaline’s COLOR YOUR WORLD  challenge is during Banana Mania week, so I’ve chosen a tribute to bananas in pop culture.  My first video is of  the theme song to ‘The Banana Splits’, a show I’d always enjoyed when I was a kid in grammar school. 

Then there’s Harry Chapin’s offbeat song, set in my place of birth, Scranton, Pennsylvania.  It came out when I was a teenager in high school.

 

 

My last song is Bananarama’s cover version of the Supremes’ classic, which they did so well during the course of my young hep cat days. 

  • Between now and next Tuesday share a post inspired by the color on your own blog or social media. A poem, flash fiction, photo, drawing, whatever you’d like!

  • Link back to this post and include your post link in a comment below so that I can share your link next week.

  • Tag your blog post ‘coloryourworld’ so others can find your post in their WordPress Reader.
