Today marks the 61st anniversary of the Roswell Incident, which unofficially served as the beginning of the post-war UFO craze. Many researchers believe that on that on the evening of July 7, 1947 an alien space craft crashed to the earth in the desert outside Roswell, New Mexico. The US Air Force maintains that what fell to earth was not an alien craft at all, but merely the remnants of a high altitude research balloon.
The Jimmy Durante song included here does not specifically reference Roswell, but given the public fascination with UFOs that emerged during the 1950's in the Incident's aftermath, it's not implausible to imagine that had there been no Roswell Incident, there may well have never been a Jimmy Durante 45 about UFOs. Then again, maybe I'm full of crap.
