"I'm Walking To New Orleans" by Fats Domino.

OK, back to the 60's: Bobby Charles wrote this 1960 R&B classic for his hero Fats Domino in 15 minutes. Domino invited Charles to his home in The Big Easy but he had to politely decline as he didn't have a car and would have had to walk a great distance. Dave Bartholomew arranged it and added orchestral strings, a rarity in those days. #6 Pop, #2 R&B. Robert "Bobby Charles" Guidry, a native Cajun, left us last year at the age of 71.

Yesterday's answer: "You Always Hurt The One You Love". Cute scene in "Blue Valentine" - she does a tap dance to the song - worth watching.
