PLAYLIST FOR: “OPEN BORDERS” (4.6.19)

7 Apr

I opened the southern border wide to celebrate just a small fraction of the songs, musicians, singers from the other side of the border who have given us so much great music. Plus I played the only Frank Sinatra song I can think of where he deliberately sings off key. And to help drive home the point of this week’s show, I also played a song from the new Broadway musical Hadestown, in which Hades, more of a demagogue than demigod, sings about building his wall around Hadestown. Sound chillingly familiar?

PLAYLIST FOR “THE MELODY CAME FIRST” (3.30.13)

1 Apr

This week I played a number of hit jazz tunes which were so popular that lyrics were added later — sometimes years later — so that singers could add them to their sets. “Holiday For Strings” is an outlier and an anomaly, but if you know Mandy’s version, you know why I couldn’t resist playing it.
