My Comments

1. Tall Paul; A cute sort of song. Was one of her best known.
2. Don't Jump to Conclusions: Okay. This one is strange. Very strange. Not that great.
3. It Took Dreams: This is one of what I guess I would call the moral-type theme songs. Don't Jump to Conclusions was about just that; this one is about fulfilling one's dreams. From that viewpoint it's a good song.
4. Wild Willie: Song about a guy that plays around. The background singers are overdone rather a bit. Annette's singing is fine, though.
1. Danceannette: Cute, definitely a song of that times.
2. The Rock-a-Cha: Another cute, basically outdated type of song.
3. Rock-a-Polka: A rather unlikely mixture of types. Somewhat cute.
4. The Flapper Flip: Trying to unite rock and roll and flapper music of the '20s. Odd.
5. The Rock and Roll Waltz: Another rather odd uniting of musical styles.
6. Mister Piano Man: Her voice just doesn't seem to match the type of voice I picture singing this type of song. I think it takes a more mature, sensual voice for this song.
7. I Can't Do The Sum: Really, really cute. Really cute.
8. Just a Toy: Another cute song.
9. The Parent Trap: A duet. Works rather well.
10. Merlin Jones: To go with the movie, sort of cute.
11. The Monkey's Uncle: Pretty cute and with decent background singing.
12. Walkin' and Talkin': Yet another cute song.
13. Beach Party Tonight: Typical beach party song of the times.
14. Blame it on the Bossa Nova: Another good song with Annette.
15. Jamica Ska: A good song.
16. Bikini Beach Party: This beach song is one of the best ones she did.
17. Let's Twist Again: She does a good job on this cover.
18. Surfer's Holiday: Another good beach type of song.
19. Stuffed Animal: Nice, gentle song.
20. Canzone D'Amore: A soft type of song. Pretty good.
21. Music! Music! Music!: A cover of a really old song, comparatively, the 'put another nickel in the nickelodeon.' She does quite well on this song.
22. How Will I Know My Love: This is a group of people singing with Annette singing alone from time to time. It's fairly nice.
23. No Way to Go But Up: Another really good song.
24. Annette: This is the one from the Mickey Mouse Club that Jimmie Dodd wrote for Annette. He also sings it. He also talks during the song. So do some other people.
