Harry Belafonte and Food AtoZ Letter H

Harry Belafonte? Yes, Harry Belafonte. It’s Food Day on my blog, so I’m posting about Harry Belafonte. Because: The Banana Boat Song. Obviously.

And what food does The Banana Boat Song make me think of? Shrimp cocktail, of course.

Harry Belafonte Meets Beetlejuice

For the version he sings with the Muppets, click this link. He’s luverly.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Write about a food that reminds you of another food.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

      So many good scenes in that movie, but this one is possibly my favorite. ๐Ÿ˜€ And the Muppets Christmas Carol is one of the best!
