Tunes That Are Looney

I may have discovered the happiest little album ever in the history of earth. "The Music of Raymond Scott: Reckless Nights and Turkish Twilights." It's this whacked-out 1930's jazz music that was often borrowed for old Warner Bros. cartoons in that era.

You'd all recognize "Powerhouse" as that industrial/factory sounding tune -- you can imagine Daffy Duck pushing some poor sap into the cogs and gears of some automated assembly line when you hear this music. This is Toontown music at its tooniest.

Anyway, the whole thing is nuts. I think it's impossible not to smile when you listen to it. Fun, fun stuff!
