Skinnie Minnie...     (Dec 2006)

Q:   ROBERT (MASSACHUSETTS):   How many people tell you that your song, "Skinnie Minnie (Fish Tail)," is their favorite? I think it's great. I know it was on your "Miss Music" album in the 1950s. Was the song a hit? Is it available on CD? (The way you roll your "r's" throughout it is awesome!)

A:  TERESA:   "How many have told me that their favorite song is 'Skinnie Minnie (Fish Tail)'? None (laughs) -- at least not in the last 50 years! To be honest, I'm not certain if the song made the charts or not. I think it might have, but I just don't know. We'll check it out for you! I'm glad you like the song; it's a cute one."

Additional note:  According to Joel Whitburn's Pop Memories 1890-1954: The History of American Popular Music, the song peaked at #22 on the Billboard charts in July of 1954.
