HINT:

Sometimes you just know; it’s obvious, it’s inevitable, it’s irrefutable and you know that things just aren’t going to end well – A Kafka novel, a Schlesinger movie, Kim Kardashian’s presidential bid. Are there any musical examples? I wonder…

PLAYLIST FOR “POLITICALLY INCORRECT!” (3.21.15) #jazz #jazzradio #jazz vocals

22 Mar

How to celebrate March as National Women’s Month? I had two choices. Choice A: Play a whole song by a male singer and then play a woman singing 77% of her song. Choice B: Demonstrate how far we’ve come by ironically playing a dozen politically incorrect songs which maybe still hit the mark musically, but certainly miss the point of the celebration by a mile. Of course, I pretended to chose B. In truth I don’t find any of these songs, except maybe the Godfrey song, to be politically incorrect, but period pieces and some favorite songs I’ve enjoyed for years. 

SONG TITLE  /  Artist  /  CD Or Album Title

 

  • WIVES AND LOVERS  /  Jack Jones  /  “Greatest Hits”
  • GIRL TALK  /  Giacomo Gates  /  “Fly Right”
  • I ENJOY BEING A GIRL  /  Peggy Lee  /  “Latin A la Lee”
  • TRY A LITTLE TENDERNESS  /  Frank Sinatra  /  “Nice ‘N’ Easy”
  • MY MAN  /  Billie Holiday  /  “The Complete 1952-1957 Small Group Sessions”
  • YOU’RE NOBODY TILL SOMEBODY LOVES YOU  /  Sammy Davis Jr.  /  “Here’s Sammy Davis Jr.”
  • TOO FAT POLKA  /  (Mystery Vocalist)  /  Arthur Godfrey  /  “Too Fat Polka”
  • TEA FOR TWO  /  Blossom Dearie  /  “Once Upon A Summer Time”
  • I WANNA GET MARRIED  /  Nellie McKay  /  “Get Away From Me”
  • NINA NEVER KNEW  /  John Pizzarelli  /  “Our Love Is Here To Stay”
  • IT’S A MAN  /  Duchess  /  “Duchess”
  • SLEEPY TIME GAL  /  Tony Bennett  /  “A Time For Love”
  • WHAT THE USE OF WOND’RIN’  /  Daryl Sherman  /  “A Hundred Million Miracles”
  • MAKE SOMEONE HAPPY  /  Jamie Cullum  /  “Interlude”
  • PARIS MISMATCH  /  (Theme Music)  /  Cody Owen Stine
