the best, and I've wanted to hear this again for ever so long. Thank you - and youtube.
That lifting of the hand after such stillness: mistress of gestus! Wunderbar.
Yes, the stillness. But all the songs from the film are good. I could keep putting them up. They are mostly on YouTube.
Absolutely marvelous George. Thanks for these. I know what you mean about the stillness etc. Dick (and it is wunderbar) but I think I prefer the older Lenya's version, also on Youtube. I am going to buy it through iTunes shortly. I have already just bought and downloaded the whole (original) Threepenny Opera with the old German versions, including the one George posted, for ten euro. A couple of pints, eh? Before listening to these, I only knew the Armstrong and Ella versions of Mack the Knife, which is superb, but... Lenya gives me serious goosebumps!
