I love Nino Rota's soundtrack music.
The plodding waltzes, rock, and 40's dance hall numbers. The eerie pre-psychedelic surrealist organ-jazz, drunk trumpet pathos, nods to Harold Arlen, and Perez Prado. Female scat vocals, and circus/carnival foxtrots. I chose some of my favorites here (plus a couple of covers). There are many more. A brief sampling.
Lounge act trio on Indie DIY, Boss Records. Very much in the vein of male vocal acts of the time (Kirby Stone Four, The Hi-Lo's, Four Freshmen, etc.) minus the big production backing them. According to the notes, their comedy routine is, "wildly hilarious."
