Mack is Back in Town!
    #1212292 - 01/12/03 05:06 PM (14 years, 9 months ago)

I'm listening to swinging version by Ella right now, but I'm also a sucker for the Darin and Armstrong versions... :laugh:

Mack The Knife
Brecht, Weill, Blitzstein

Oh the shark has pretty teeth, dear
And he shows them pearly white
Just a jack knife has old MacHeath, dear
And he keeps it out of sight

You know when the shark bites
with his teeth, dear
Scarlet billows start to spread
Fancy gloves though wears MacHeath, dear
So there's never, never a trace of red

On the sidewalk, Sunday morning,
Don't you know
Lies a body oozing life
Someone's sneaking round the corner
Could that be our boy, Mack the knife?

From a tug boat by the river
There's a cement bag just dropping on down
The cement's just for the weight, dear
Bet you Mack is back in town

Did you hear about Louie Miller he disappeared
After drawing out all his hard earned cash
And MacHeath spends like a sailor
Could it be our boy did something rash?

Jenny Diver, Sukey Tawdr
Look out Miss Lotte Lenya, and old Lucy Brown
Oh the line forms on the right, babe
Now that Mack is back in town

I said Jenny Diver, Sukey Tawdr
Look out Miss Lotte Lenya, and old Lucy Brown
Oh the line forms on the right, babe
Now that Mack is back in town

The Shadow Of Your Smile
Webster and Mandel

The shadow of your smile when you have gone
Will color all my dreams and light the dawn
Look into my eyes, my love, and see
All the lovely things you are to me

Our wistful little star, it was far too high
A teardrop kissed your lips and so, so did I
Now when I remember Spring and every little lovely thing
I will be remembering the shadow of your smile

Your lovely smile

I switched over to the local college stations nightly jazz programming and heard an instrumental version of this song. God, that was a great movie, but then so was, The Lost Weekend (which was even a better book!)... :cool:

The Days of Wine and Roses
Henry Mancini and Johnny Mercer

The days of wine and roses,
Laugh and run away,
Like a child at play,
Through a meadowland,
Toward a closing door,
A door marked never more,
That wasn?t there before.
 
The lonely night discloses,
Just a passing breeze,
Filled with memories,
Of the golden smile,
That introduced me to,
The days of wine and roses,
And you!
 
The lonely night discloses,
Just a passing breeze,
Filled with memories,
Of the golden smile,
That introduced me to,
The days of wine and roses,
And you!

/ me hears mariachi static on the raidio, and the tubes they glow in the dark...
/ me thinks I'm with there with her in Ensenada, and I'm I'm here in Echo park...

Carmelita, hold me tighter
I think I'm sinking down
And I'm all strung out on heroin
On the outskirts of town

Well I pawned my Smith and Wesson
And I went to meet my man
He hangs out down on Alvarado Street
At the Pioneer Chicken stand

Carmelita, hold me tighter
I think I'm sinking down
And I'm all strung out on heroin
On the outskirts of town

Well I'm sittin' here playing solitaire
With my pearl handled deck
The county won't give me no more methadone
And they cut off your welfare check

Carmelita, hold me tighter
I think I'm sinking down
And I'm all strung out on heroin
On the outskirts of town

Carmelita, hold me tighter
I think I'm sinking down
And I'm all strung out on heroin
On the outskirts of town

Straight To the Top (Vegas)
Tom Waits and Greg Cohen

I'm going straight to the top
oh yea up where the air is
fresh and clean
I'm going straight up to the top
if you know me, you know what I mean
I can't let sorrow
try and pull ol' Frankie down
live for tomorrow I have found you
I'm going straight up to the top
up where the air is fresh and clean
i know that I will never stop, oh no
until I know I'm wild and free
just like a champagne bubble
pop pop pop
I'm like those birdies
high up in the trees
I can't let sorrow
pull ol' Frankie down
live for tomorrow
I have found you
I'm going straight up to the top oh yeah
up where the air is fresh and clean

I like "Mack The Knife" by Bobby Darrin, and I have it on cd.

I just can't believe such a fucking violent song was sung so long ago, and in such a nonchalont(sp) mannor.

Hey LF, I just noticed, that's the "dead baby" beatles' album cover! I had a chance to buy one back in the eighties, but it was several hundred dollars. Now I wish I had...

I just got back from an aborted WalMart trip -- they were closed. So I was driving the rain-soaked, late night, highway back from town, and the fog was like thick and heavy white, and I'm listing to Miles Davis' version of "My Funny Valentine" -- one word, "wicked!" -- and it got me thinking about past loves, and I have come to the conclusion that chicks that know their jazz are definitely deeper and more soulful, This has been my experience, anyway... :cool:

That Beatles cover is known as "The Butcher Cover" version of the best of album "Yesterday and Today".

Here's a good site about it

Here's another

Yeah, I know. I remember looking at one in Recycled Record in Palo Alto, California, in about 1979, when I was just a goofy teenager. It was several hundred dollars at the time, and that was just more than I was prepared to spend for a record. I wish I had bought it now...

I do have an American promotional copy of Pink Floyd's "Piper at the Gates of Dawn," on the original English record label! :cool:

Unless your a hardcore record collector, I wouldn't worry about buying that record. Forget about material possessions. They'll just weigh you down.

I remember you mentioning your "PATGOD" record though. That's hella cool!
