Catamount Community Radio - July 2, 2017

I'm pretty late getting this up. Been distracted with a new musical project: I'm playing bass guitar with a group called Georgia Johnson and the Sensations. We play "neo-soul" and kinda old-fashioned soul too. We've been rehearsing almost everyday and we have a big gig this coming Saturday.

So Sunday I featured the song writing of Cole Porter. The Indiana native wrote both musics and lyrics, some of the best known tunes in the American songbook. I especially appreciate his wit, his nonchalance combined at times with a genuine sentimentality.

We heard Annie Lennox sing "Every Time We Say Goodbye"; let's see if I can remember some lyrics.

Every time we say goodbye
I die a little.
Every time we say goodbye
I wonder why, a little
There's no love song finer
but how strange, the change
from major to minor
Every time we say goodbye.

Shirley Horn singing "Love for Sale."

Love that's fresh and never spoiled
Love that's only slightly soiled
Love for sale.

Ella with "Night and Day," Deborah Harry and Iggy Pop with "Well, Did You Evah?", Sarah Vaughan with "It's De-Lovely"

So please be sweet, my chickadee,
And when I kiss ya, just say to me
"It's delightful, it's delicious, it's delectable, it's delirious,
It's dilemma, it's de limit, it's deluxe, it's de-lovely"

k.d. lang with "So in Love"

Even without you
my arms fold about you
So in love with you
am I
