“Milwaukee Polka” sung by Patti Page (with Joe Riesman and His Polka-Dots.)
This record reminds me of my childhood. No, I wasn’t alive in 1953 when Mercury Records released this track, but my grandmother gave me her phonograph and record collection when I was rather young. This tune was always my favorite. I’ve lived in Wisconsin (near Milwaukee) my whole life, and listening to Patti Page’s cheerful voice sing about familiar places always made me feel better.
“Milwaukee, he’s wild about Milwaukee. When we kiss, I’ll tell you this: I love Milwaukee too!”
