    Agree, think they should be used as the benchmark for popular music. Before Beatles and Anno Lennon & McCartney.

    Nothing in my collection before Love Me Do, and for good reason.
     
  2. Raises the hairs on the nape of your neck. Sinatra once said “If I had to choose three of the finest male vocalists in the singing business, Matt would be one of them. His pitch was right on the nose; his word enunciations letter perfect; his understanding of a song thorough.” This is one of my three fav songs on Karaoke



    More Matty from 1969.



    To the end of the world Ric : /



    Anything with a Moon in it cant be all that bad. Her voice is simply adorable.



    When I am feeling down I talk to the trees but they don't listen to me. Bless you Clint.

  3. "Mack the Knife" or "The Ballad of Mack the Knife" (German: "Die Moritat von Mackie Messer") is a song composed by Kurt Weill with lyrics by Bertolt Brecht for their 1928 music drama The Threepenny Opera (German: Die Dreigroschenoper)

    So yes it's an olden one and one of my three fav Karaoke tunes to clear out a room with !

    Look at this.
    Young Elvis before Colonel bollocks turned him into some crappy B movie star and Vegas cabaret puppet in a jump suit.
    Elvis was superb when he was young.
