Th05e We!e the Da*s: M@r^ H0p&!n

Okay, this is a new thing. Richard suggested, “Make the information HUMAN-readable only – like the ‘captcha’ screens do. Most readers will catch on to the way the game’s played over time and the machines have nothing for The Master. It could even become a variation on ‘Name That Tune!’”

      Thank you, my dear Hedley,

      This is a song from my college days, and my friends and I lamented it was probably prophetic.

    I can listen to this song all day. I think it is the melanccholy sound I like so much.
    Here’s a link to the Swedish version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6LVVJu59KDo

      Christer,
      This is even a bit more melancholic than the Mary version. It is beautifully sung.

    • Richard Says:

      It’s a nice version … quite reminiscent of vintage Marlene Dietrich’s voice … ‘Lili Marlene’ isn’t quite an accurate sample to compare, but close enough for government work …

    Kat,
    You know this song often make me teary eyed.

    Where did those days go?

  6. katry Says:

    Richard,
    That was a great article. Now I want to find as many versions as I can. It will be a good thing to “while away the hours.”

    • Richard Says:

      Don’t be gettin’ all ‘WFMU-FM,’ okay … ? They had (have?) 61 diff’rent versions of ‘Tico Tico’ in their archives … and yes, one of ’em is by Ricky Ricardo and another’s by Xavier Cugat …
