Them There Eyes


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
This is a song written in 1927 by Maceo Pinkard, Doris Tauber, and William Tracey once they got sprung from prison (they were charged with running one of those "close cover before striking" schools for songwriters scams).

Thank you for listening and have a hauntingly beautiful, beguiling and illuminating week!

Michael

Vocal and rest: Michael
Accompaniment: Paige Turner and his Ork (actually its either Alan McPike on the Bespoke organ or London Arrangements, using Cubase--I didn't label this accompaniment track that I got some years ago, so apologies to both for the confusion!)
Artwork: The ever beautiful Marty Feldman as "Igor" (pronounced "Eye-gore") in "Young Frankenstein"

Oh Yeah
Another gem. Love the band introductions. I think I did a gig with Kenny Reid. I think Paige Turner booked me for that gig.

Thanks Andrew
There were a couple of them that were just too obscene to use and like yourself, I think I worked with those guys back in Atlantic City at one time! Take good care now, Michael

I think that movie was the last picture I ever saw (and I was maybe 11 when I saw it) that made me laugh almost nonstop and to the point where I was crying. Glad you could stop by and hope you are having a good weekend! Take care now! Photobucket

Thank You O Fast One!
Yeah, those guys were something else! I think one of them had a flask tied around his ankle with a rubber siphon leading up under his clothes to his mouth--very hardcore group of musicians. Appreciate your coming by! Take care, Michael Photobucket

Damn your eyes! ... too late!
Great band, but superlative purr-formance sung by the incomparable Michael and his hard-workin' vocational chords. Put a smile on these lips here... and who can't smile at Marty up there.

"Willy Show"... love it... they never get old.

ttfn,
Drakonis

Actually, I have advocational cords--this is just a hobby! I resorted to Marty mainly because a Google search under "eyes" produced some truly ghastly and abhorrent images and also because of sentimental reasons (everybody loved Marty Feldman!) Thanks again Drak--have a great week! Photobucket Michael

Okay..
I want whatever chutspa you have, bottled...because I need some of that. You can't sing one of these without going all comedic and I understand it, because it is about entertainment. You could cheer up a room full of dead people, without half trying. Thanks for being you. :)

Great athmosphere
I wouldn't like to be repetitive saying you've got a great voice, I guess this is an evidence. I liked the "athmosphere" and by the way, it was very kind of you to present your orchestra and the conductor. My only criticism would be for the artwork, man, when I opened it, it scared the ...... out of me :-)

Well, seriously Michael, another great one !

I know there are some who avoid me like the plague (for various reasons--fortunately it works out mutually) but I'm very happy there is someone like you here who believes enough in these great old songs to help keep them alive. Looking forward to perhaps working with you and the gang a bit down the road here! Take care now and nice seeing you! Michael

wow
great backer! And you rule! I just realized you need a radio show! You know like that prairie league thing on public radio but not, you never did answer the time traveler, time machine question... are you? do you have one? can I go for a ride in it someday?

Ya know
I've been toying with the idea for some years now of doing a demo and perhaps sending it off to something we have here in Minneapolis called "Fresh Air Radio", which is open to the community. I worked in radio for several years and I think I can still operate a console with no problem! Thanks very much for your kind words James! I don't have a time machine but do have one of the niftiest Cuisinarts on the market! Michael

Hey Maurice!
I remember as a kid, the owner of the candy store I hung out told me that Elvis Presley made the best movies. I kind of did a double-take, then he said, "Yeah, think about it: they have a little drama, a little romance, a little action, a little song, a little dance, a little of everything." I think I might have done that here! Thanks, as always, for listening and your kind remarks! Michael

Before I'd even heard the song I started laughing! (Dear old Marty Feldman! I once saw him pretending to be the Bishop of a railway train.) Great work as always, Michael!

Thanks very much Ken!
Yes, I was very fond of him too. I remember in an interview they asked him if he ever wished his eyes were "normal". His response always impressed me. He answered "Oh of course, I wish I were conventionally handsome, but this way, I'm a novelty." Whatta guy! Glad you enjoyed this old song and thanks for stopping by! Michael

Hey you!
No, I've yet to encounter Ms. Noforte in my travels, but I have a passing acquaintance with her sister, Ann Dante (don't pass it around, but I've heard it whispered that she's kind of slow--if you know what I mean). You're a stitch! Thanks again Paula, Michael
