How About You?

Description
This is an old standard that some people seem to think was written by George Gershwin (probably because his name is mentioned in the lyrics--now ol' George was very egotistical, and rightly so--but I don't think even he'd have gone to that extreme!)

I'm heading on vacation for a week so I thought I'd slap something on the board for now. Thanks so much for listening to this wonderful song by Burton Lane and Ralph Freed.

Take care now,

Michael

Arrangement and accompaniment: Mr. Alan McPike
Vocal: Moms Mabley, Jr.
Artwork: Cartoonist Basil Wolverton's infamous "Lena the Hyena" on the cover of Mad Magazine, circa 1958 (I searched in vain for a good Charles Addams job but they were SO small!)

How About You?
I got to the front door and was turned away as the riff-raff I am because I didn't have the two cents. So I went around to the back alley. The kitchen help let me hang out there and listen. Great song. Those guys on organ and guitar rock. That singing guy's pretty damn good too.

Very nice track. A little bit more on the pop side than what you usually do.

Another fantastic installment
Another fantastic installment in the Klein/Pike opus. Loved the organ and your vocals are as irreverent and inventive as ever. Have a great holiday. Take care, Peter.

Hi Michael
Nice version of this classic song.

About midnight here. Perfect for sending me off to slumberland with a smile.

As always a great pleasure and much appreciated!

Cheers now

Fun
Backer. Cool organs and panned drum splashes are a treat from Mr McPike.
Hmmmm I think this is heading to top of my MJK chart. Your voice is mixed with an extra splash of honey on this one.
I like potato chips too (crisps as the queen says) I eat my own bodyweight in prawn cocktail pringles daily.... Yum!!

Nice arrangement
As usual, a fantastic performance. Really dig the guitar lead. The keys accompany well through out and of course the singing is spot on.

I love when you sing so much. I was so tired now with working so much. But now when I listen to you sing I am dancing. Have so much fun on the vacation.

XOXO,

The entertainment value is always off the charts with you MJK.

Not only that but your songs are educational as well. I often find myself googling the artists and such as you mention them.

Thanks.
