The Java Jive by The Ink Spots, 1940
Song Of The Week #001

Celebrating that "cheery, cheery" bean of the caffeinated variety with the Ink Spots (Hoppy Jones, Deek Watson, Bill Kenny, and Charlie Fuqua).

The song went largely unplayed during World War II for its reference to the wily Japanese detective Mr. Moto (played by Peter Lorre in a series of movies).

Likewise, the Japanese occupied the Dutch colony of Java (Indonesia) which cut off that source of Coffee to the American market for several years...Brazil picked up the slack.
