A Side: How Will I Know My Love?

   Today we are delving into the fun worlds of 45 RPM singles!  I picked up this wonderful piece of vinyl at a massive flea market/antique fair in NYC a few weeks ago, along with a few Little Golden Books.   I've always loved this song, and was happy to find out the story behind it! 

more after the jump...

   I didn't realize that this was Annette's first single!  I would have bet money on Tall Paul!  Here is a super charming video of Annette describing the circumstances of her foray into music, with a "little" nudge from Walt.

   I love that the song was supposed to be a joke, because I've always thought of it as one of the better songs on the album.  Plus, why would the Sherman brothers write a throw away? Not possible.   Here is the song.

   How Will I Know My Love, as it appeared on the MMC.

   In the grand scheme of things, this song is a little wishy washy.  It isn't anywhere near the top of the Sherman's canon. It does however own its place in history, starting Annette's career in music.  I wish I was on that hay ride...
