Jackie Cain, Roy Kral and the Sweet Smell Of Love

Jackie and Roy were a husband and wife singing duo who performed together for almost 60 years until Roy’s death in 2002. Wikipedia says the song is from a 1955 album called “Jackie Cain and Roy Kral” which was reissued in 1987 as “Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most.”

Even though I don’t wear any scent myself, I do highly endorse anthems to not stinking. But this song has absolutely nothing to do with not having B.O. This number is clearly a thinly veiled ode to rutting like beasts (which I also highly endorse). Of course they would have had to do it 1950’s style from separate twin beds and with one foot on the floor. People must have been MUCH more flexible back then!
