At this juncture, lets reminisce an old song “I got a lovely bunch of coconuts” composed in 1944 by Fred Heatherton. The re-make of the song in 1950, sung by the vocalist Merv Griffin with the Freddy Martin and his Orchestra was in top 10 hit in the USA and sold 3 million copies. Hope you will enjoy the number as I did.
