I wonder who Kiki was?  Maybe Converse's cat?  I almost adopted a shelter cat named Kiki once.

Rather a complex tune, Paul!

where is that?

Oh, sorry...just looked at the name and didn't play it. Guess it it isn't a good title to flaunt these days..ha. Much worse than a statue.

Tim you keep bringing up statues. Therapy can help.  lol

Is Kiki a bad or derogatory name?  I know Kike (pronounced KEE-kay) is the nickname for Enrique which is Henry in Spanish.

I don't know how I do not know this song is called Kiki's favorite.

I dont see it in Rice anyway.  Paul..?

I changed the name to protect the innocent... So... Kiki de Montparnasse- she's the woman in the photograph in the background... Page 62 of Rice...

The song is Darkey's Jig. There ...I said it!!!!! 

AGHHHHH

Ok thanks for the clarification.  Kiki's Favorite is a good name.
I modified another song I like to play to now 'Where's Dat Cat'... since we're always trying to locate one damn cat or another here at our house.  It's a beautiful tune saddled with a very ugly old name. Times have changed and it deserves better!

Paul, so who exactly IS this Kiki?  Do you know anything about her?
I used to have a very sweet pug named The Dutchess Kinky Ballou.
