‘Day-O’ song­writer dies

at 95: Com­poser Irv­ing Burgie, who helped pop­u­lar­ize Caribbean mu­sic and co-wrote the en­dur­ing Harry Be­la­fonte hit “Day-O (The Ba­nana Boat Song),” has died at the age of 95. At the Bar­ba­dos In­de­pen­dence Day Pa­rade on Satur­day, Prime Min­is­ter Mia Amor Mot­t­ley an­nounced Burgie died Fri­day. “Day-O,” writ­ten in 1952, has been ubiq­ui­tous, ap­pear­ing in ev­ery­thing from the film and Broad­way mu­si­cal “Beetle­juice” to an E-Trade com­mer­cial. Ac­cord­ing to the Song­writ­ers Hall of Fame, Burgie’s songs have sold more than 100 mil­lion records through­out the world. Many were recorded by Be­la­fonte, in­clud­ing eight songs on Be­la­fonte’s 1956 al­bum, “Ca­lypso,” the first al­bum to sell more than 1 mil­lion copies in the U.S. Burgess also penned songs for the Kingston Trio (“The Seine,” “El Mata­dor” and “The Wan­derer”) and for other groups.
