Is You Is Or Is You Ain’t My Baby – Song Of The Day

Louis Jordan

Written by Louis Jordan and Billy Austin, “Is You Is Or Is You Ain’t My Baby” was a cool 1944 jazz song which topped the US country/folk charts back in the day despite being a B-side of “G.I. Jive”. The song, which eventually became something of a jazz standard tune, was of course covered by many since its release. Most notably, Tom (voiced by Ira Woods), serenaded a lady cat to the song in an episode of Tom & Jerry.
