I found this out late in the day, probably through a YouTube poster who knew in advance…that today is (or yesterday was, depending on where you are) the birthday of Suman Kalyanpur (born January 28, 1937). Last night, I just happened to be watching one of my favorite songs by Suman Kalyanpur, because I was thinking about cats. Since I don’t have the time to put together an adequate list of songs by Suman Kalyanpur, I will let this one suffice – because it is also a birthday party song (though the party isn’t meant for a human, of course).
P.S. There is a very good, comprehensive post about Suman Kalyanpur at Songs of Yore.
