Quote from: Freddy on October 08, 2022, 07:02:29 AMSuch a great song Carl  :thumbsup:

No offense but it's actually quite a horrible song but often when a song is sung, little attention is paid to the lyrics or real message of a song. This is one such song.

I'll show you the Lyrics first then the message contained in the lyrics...

Oh the shark, babe, has such teeth, dear
And he shows them pearly white
Just a jackknife has old Macheath, babe
And he keeps it outta sight

You know when that shark bites with his teeth, babe
Scarlet billows start to spread
Fancy gloves, though, wears ol' Macheath, babe
So there's never, never a trace of red

Now, on the side walk, ooh Sunday morning, uh huh
Lies a body just oozing life, eek
And someone's sneaking 'round the corner
Could that someone be Mack the Knife?
There's a tugboat down by the river, don't you know
Where a cement bag's just a-drooping on down
Oh, that cement is just, it's there for the weight, dear
Five'll get ya ten, ol' Mackie's back in town

Now did ya hear 'bout Louie Miller? He disappeared, babe
After drawing out all his hard earned cash
And now Macheath spends just like a sailor
Could it be our boy's done something rash?

Now, Jenny Diver, ho ho, Suky Tawdry
Ooh, Miss Lotte Lenya and ol' Lucy Brown
Oh, the line forms on the right, babe
Now that Mackie's back in town

I said, Jenny Diver, woah, Suky Tawdry
Look out, Miss Lotte Lenya and ol' Lucy Brown
Yes, that line forms on the right, babe
Now that Mackie's back in town

Look out ol' Mackie is back

==============================================

This song is the a cover of the original by Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weil, first performed in their 1928 anti-capitalist musical drama, The Threepenny Opera.

The song has become more famous for this Bobby Darin version. While the song has a mellow and cool sound, it is actually about a murderous rapist named Macheath from The Threepenny Opera.

The women could be prostitutes and a body is being submerged down by the river with cement bags.

Yeah, a great song...perhaps not so much...

Just goes to show ya...

I knew the thing with the lyrics Art; I almost mentioned it like you, but it was too early for my brain to go into much detail.

Freddy

Here is a nice one from the Big O. :)


Freddy

Thought I had posted this, but it seems not.


Freddy

Here's a song by a group I discovered a few years back now. They are sisters and have a lot of good tunes. It's hard to find new music I like these days, but I like these two a lot.


Data

I like that tune Freddy, it has a feel good factor  :thumbsup:


Here is a mix of new and old instruments.


Data

This one has a great video but probably not to everyone's taste.

Hey! You are as old as the music you listened too  ;D


Carl2

    got to give it a like

Thanks Carl  :D

Ok! Don't try this at home kids.


Freddy

Really good videos/tunes Data  :thumbsup:  8)

I liked the way the cymbal went all wobbly in that last one!

Freddy

It's still hard to believe Terry Hall has gone. This popped up on YoutTube last week.


Data

Yes very sad about Terry Hall, he had a surprisingly flexible voice that souded great on a number of styles IMHO.

I'm going to shake it up a bit with this synth rift from 1989.
