Hello, Dolly!

The song that Lorelai sings in a Louis Armstrong voice to annoy Luke.

It was first sung by Carol Channing in the original Broadway production, which opened to great success. Louis Armstrong‘s recording of the song was released shortly afterwards, which reached #1 in the US, ending The Beatles‘ streak of three chart-topping hits over fourteen weeks.

“Hello, Dolly!” is Louis Armstrong’s most commercially successful song. It won the Grammy Award for Song of the Year in 1965, and Armstrong received the Grammy for Best Vocal Performance, Male.
