  • Anita O’Day, Ballad of the Sad Young Men (1961)

    Posted by Lexington Green on November 25th, 2011 (All posts by )

    “All the news is bad again, kiss your dreams goodbye.”

    (Is the impending Eurogeddon the Credit-Anstalt crash of this century? Will thing get so bad we won’t even be able to keep our “glasses full of rye”? Will a “grimy moon” shine down on an icy Kondratieff Winter? I sure hope not.)

      I like it a lot (while stirring my late night Sapphire gin gibson). Thanks.

    2. Lexington Green Says:

      Gerry: Anita was a martini drinker, so an appropriate choice.

    3. PenGun Says:

      Very much underrated. One of the best female singers of all time. Her rendition of “Sweet Georgia Brown” is a masterpiece.

    4. Lexington Green Says:

      Pengun, agreed. She is underrated, for reasons that provide interesting fodder for speculation.

      This version of Stella by Starlight is my current favorite.

      I previously posted this version, and the pair make an interesting contrast.
