She's my Talahassee Lassie

I heard this song for the first time last night watching a very disturbing movie, Dahmer, about the disgusting exploits of Jeffrey Dahmer. This track was featured during a scene where Dahmer is dancing around his apartment with a young victim, a very big knife and a skeleton. Freaky stuff.

Here's a much better version from the original artist, Freddie Cannon. As an added bonus, we get an introduction from the great Andy Kaufman who convinces Cannon to let him play the bongos. I'm hoping this much more innocent version of the song erases the memory of Dahmer looking to feast on another prey.

This is 1950s Rockabilly gold, complete with white shoes and polyester pants. The music starts at 1:15 into the video. Enjoy.
