el watusi

***
WE USED TO DANCE TO THIS ON TOP OF THE JUKE BOX AT LA CASA'S ON DECATUR STREET IN THE FRENCH QUARTER

I've written about this once or twice before. Here's the song:

( El Watusi )


El Watusi - by Ray Barretto



It's not La Casa's anymore.

Decatur Street is not the same.

Neither is New Orleans.

Nor the world.

Just me.

I still have El Watusi on a 45 and record album. And I still remember the funky streets and smokey bars of Decatur Street. And dancing atop the juke box at La Casa's.

And I am still a free man.

Thanks, Aria. That makes me happy.

Now that's a music video I'd love to see. Get together with CP and do your own video. ;-)

That's not supposed to be a bad thing, is it? :-)

I'll bet C.P. could come up with something pretty creative.
