Click on title to hear the song:

Fred Astaire Let's Face The Music And Dance (1936)
There may be trouble ahead
But while there's moonlight and music
And love and romance
Let's face the music and dance
Before the fiddlers have fled
Before they ask us to pay the bill
And while we still
Have the chance
Let's face the music and dance
We'll be without the moon
Humming a diff'rent tune
And then
There may be teardrops to shed
So while there's moonlight and music
And love and romance
Let's face the music and dance
Let's face the music and dance
Music and Lyrics by Irving Berlin
Happy New Year!
Feliz Año Nuevo!

I'm just back from shopping at the mall here in Lewisham and saw exactly the same thing that you drew here with people going on shopping (me included) around newspapers' display of barbaric front pages.
Perfectly matched music, let's face it...
...Happy New Year

The world doesn't get better or worse, stays the same...and that's terrible

El mundo no se pone ni mejor ni peor, sigue igual, y eso es lo terrible

Grande Oscar !!!
Siempre atento al "progreso" del mundo actual. El "newspapers stand" bien clarito y todo alrededor gris y "dale que va".

Gran letra y música de Irving Berlin el ruso de nombre real Israel Isidore Baline que creo murió a los 101 años en NYC.

Acerca de la "evolución sufrida" en la música (como en tanta otras cosas) acabo de recibir una interesante comparación que comparto:

MUSIC 1936 vs. 2006

You be the judge as to how far we've progressed in 70 years:

The Oscar winning song from 1936

"The Way You Look Tonight" From: Swing Time (1936) Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire

Music by Jerome Kern; lyrics by Dorothy Fields

Someday when I'm awfully low
When the world is cold
I will feel a glow
Just thinking of you
And the way you look tonight

Oh, but you're lovely
With your smile so warm
And your cheek so soft
There is nothing for me
But to love you
Just the way you look tonight

With each word
Your tenderness grows
Tearing my fear apart
And that laugh
That wrinkles your nose
Touches my foolish heart

Lovely, never ever change
Keep that breathless charm
Won't you please arrange it
'Cause I love you
Just the way you look tonight


The Oscar winning song of 2006

"It's Hard Out Here for a Pimp" from Hustle and Flow (2006)

Music (?) and Lyrics by: Jordan Houston, Cedric Coleman and Paul Beauregard

You know it's hard out here for a pimp (you ain't knowin)
When he tryin to get this money for the rent (you ain't knowin)
For the Cadillacs and gas money spent (you ain't knowin)
Will have a whole lot of bitches talkin shit (you ain't knowin)
(Academy Award show version) Will have a whole lot of witches jumpin ship!

In my eyes I done seen some crazy thangs in the streets
Gotta couple hos workin on the changes for me
But I gotta keep my game tight like Kobe on game night
Like takin from a ho don't know no better, I know that ain't right
Done seen people killed, done seen people deal
Done seen people live in poverty with no meals
It's fucked up where I live, but that's just how it is
It might be new to you, but it's been like this for years
It's blood sweat and tears when it come down to this shit
I'm tryin to get rich 'fore I leave up out this bitch
I'm tryin to have thangs but it's hard fo' a pimp
But I'm prayin and I'm hopin to God I don't slip, yeah


Man it seems like I'm duckin dodgin bullets everyday
niggaz hatin on me cause I got, hos on the tray
But I gotta stay paid, gotta stay above water
Couldn't keep up with my hoes, that's when shit got harder
North Memphis where I'm from, I'm 7th Street bound
Where niggaz all the time end up lost and never found
Man these girls think we prove thangs, leave a big head
They come hopin every night, they don't end up bein dead
Wait I got a snow bunny, and a black girl too
You pay the right price and they'll both do you
That's the way the game goes, gotta keep it strictly pimpin
Gotta have my hustle tight, makin change off these women, yeah


Stop the World !!! I Want to Get Off habían dicho Bricusse & Newley (y Mafalda en famosa tira) en forma humorística (o no?)

Creo que la letra de Berlin tiene la importancia de prepararnos para lo que se nos va a caer encima...Antes de que "nos traigan la cuenta".
