“In the Mood”

January 28, 2013 47 comments

This post is about a song from the 40’s that has had a long and interesting career.  It was actually written on top of an existing music score, and repurposed.  The story is copied below from Wikipedia.  Then a bunch of people recorded it and gave it their own flair – like Bette Midler in the 1970’s.

Enjoy the info, and the videos.

What can we learn from this for our online business today?  You don’t always have to invent something from scratch.  You can repurpose, and reuse info that is good and solid and that works.  Go back to the basics and be inspired.  Put a new twist on it, and do it again.  It could be a new hit for you!

————————–

In the Mood” is a big band era #1 hit recorded by American bandleader Glenn Miller. It topped the charts in 1940 in the U.S. and one year later was featured in the movie Sun Valley Serenade.

In 1999, National Public Radio (NPR) included the 1939 Glenn Miller recording on RCA Bluebird on the NPR 100, the list of “The 100 most important American musical works of the 20th century”.[1]

Notable artists who have recorded big-band versions of “In The Mood” include the Joe Loss Orchestra, Xavier Cugat, Tommy Dorsey, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, Lubo D’Orio, the Brian Setzer Orchestra, The Shadows and John Williams with the Boston Pops Orchestra.

Non-big-band renditions were recorded by the Andrews Sisters, Jerry Lee Lewis, Chet Atkins, Bill Haley & His Comets, Bad Manners, and the Puppini Sisters. In addition, in 1959 Ernie Fields and his Orchestra peaked at number 4 on the pop chart and number 7 on the R&B charts.[2] The song charted at number 16 in 1953 in a version by Johnny Maddox. Jonathan King scored a UK Top 50 hit with his version of the song in 1976. Bette Midler recorded the song in 1973 (on the album Bette Midler). The avant-garde synthpop act Art of Noise occasionally performed a rendition of the song on their live shows, in their trademark sampled style. The rock band Chicago added their version in 1995. An unusual version of the song was released on Maynard Ferguson‘s ‘Lost Tapes Volume 2′ album. The first 30 seconds are the traditional version, but the band then re-starts with the trumpets taking the lead.

A novelty version of the song was recorded by country/novelty artist Ray Stevens in 1977. Stevens’ version consisted of him performing the song in chicken clucks, bar-for-bar. The performance was credited to the “Henhouse Five Plus Too”. The single was a Top-40 hit in both America and the UK.

In 1951 a Ferranti Mark 1 computer at the University of Manchester played “In the Mood”, one of the first songs to be played by a computer, and the oldest known recording of digitally generated music.[3]

Lyrics, In the Mood

Who’s the lovely daddy with the beautiful eyes
What a pair o’ lips, I’d like to try ‘em for size
I’ll just tell him, baby, won’t you swing it with me?
Hope he tells me maybe, what a wing it will be
So, I said politely, “Darlin’, may I intrude”
He said, “Don’t keep me waitin’ when I’m in the mood”

First he held me lightly when we started to dance
Then he held me tightly what a dreamy romance
And he said, “Hey, baby, it’s a quarter to three
There’s a mess of moonlight, won’t you share it with me?”
“Well”, I answered, “Baby, don’t you know that it’s rude
To keep my sisters waitin’ when they’re in the mood?”

In the mood that’s what he told me
In the mood and when he told me
In the mood my heart was skippin’
It didn’t take me long to say I’m in the mood now

In the mood for all his kissin’
[- From: http://www.elyrics.net -]

In the mood his crazy lovin’
In the mood what I was missin’
It didn’t take me long to say I’m in the mood now

First he held me lightly when we started to dance
Then he held tightly what a dreamy romance
And he said, “Hey, baby, it’s a quarter to three
There’s a mess of moonlight, won’t you share it with me?”
Then I answered, “Baby, don’t you know that it’s rude
To keep my sisters waitin’ when they’re in the mood?”

In the mood that’s what he told me
In the mood and when he told me
In the mood my heart was skippin’
It didn’t take me long to say I’m in the mood now

In the mood for all his kissin’
In the mood his crazy lovin’
In the mood what I was missin’
It didn’t take me long to say I’m in the mood now

In the mood
In the mood
In the mood

If at first you don’t succeed, be creative and try again!

Success doesn’t always happen the first time.

This song is a great example.

Originally written by Phil Medley and Bert Russell, and recorded by the Top Notes in 1961.  It was not a very popular song.  The writer Bert Russell felt that the producer, Phil Spector, did not do a good job.

He produced it with another group in 1962 – the Isley Brothers.  It went to 20 on the Billboard Top 100 chart.

In 1964, the Beatle’s version was released as a single and got to #2 on Billboard’s chart.

1986 the song was featured in “Ferris Bueller’s Day off” and Matthew Broderick’s character lip synched to the recording.  It shot up to number 23 on the charts again 22 years later.

Reuse, rethink, repurpose!

When you have a good idea, it can be good again.

Shake it up, Baby!!

“Twist And Shout”

Well, shake it up, baby, now (Shake it up, baby)
Twist and shout (Twist and shout)
C’mon c’mon, c’mon, c’mon, baby, now (Come on baby)
Come on and work it on out (Work it on out)

Well, work it on out, honey (Work it on out)
You know you look so good (Look so good)
You know you got me goin’, now (Got me goin’)
Just like I knew you would (Like I knew you would)

Well, shake it up, baby, now (Shake it up, baby)
Twist and shout (Twist and shout)
C’mon, c’mon, c’mon, c’mon, baby, now (Come on baby)
Come on and work it on out (Work it on out)

You know you twist your little girl (Twist, little girl)
You know you twist so fine (Twist so fine)
Come on and twist a little closer, now (Twist a little closer)
And let me know that you’re mine (Let me know you’re mine)

Well, shake it up, baby, now (Shake it up, baby)
Twist and shout (Twist and shout)
C’mon, c’mon, c’mon, c’mon, baby, now (Come on baby)
Come on and work it on out (Work it on out)

A little Carmen Miranda to make you smile!

January 13, 2013 33 comments

 

Carmen Miranda was a beautiful performer with a million dollar smile.

The latin beats are always wonderful, just like our heartbeats.  The music is timeless and cheerful.

Short bio from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carmen_Miranda

Carmen Miranda

Miranda in the 1943 film The Gang’s All Here
Born Maria do Carmo Miranda da Cunha
9 February 1909
Marco de Canaveses, Portugal
Died 5 August 1955 (aged 46)
Beverly Hills, California, U.S.
Cause of death Heart attack
Resting place Cemitério São João Batista
Other names The Brazilian Bombshell
The Chiquita Banana Girl
Education Convent of Saint Therese of Lisieux
Occupation Singer, dancer, actress
Years active 1928–1955
Spouse(s) ‹See Tfd›

David Alfred Sebastian (m. 1947 – 1955)

Carmen Miranda, GCIH (Portuguese pronunciation: [ˈkaɾmẽȷ̃ miˈɾɐ̃dɐ], 9 February 1909 – 5 August 1955) was a Portuguese-born Brazilian[1][2] samba singer, dancer, Broadway actress, and film star who was popular in the 1940s and 1950s.

After establishing a successful singing and acting career in her native Brazil, Lee Shubert signed Miranda and her band to a contract in 1939. She made her American stage debut in July 1939, and later moved to Hollywood to pursue a film career.[3] Nicknamed “The Brazilian Bombshell”,[4] Miranda is noted for her signature fruit hat outfit she wore in the 1943 movie The Gang’s All Here. By 1945, she was the highest paid woman in the United States.

Miranda made a total of fourteen Hollywood films between 1940 and 1953. Though hailed as a talented performer, her popularity waned by the end of World War II. She later grew to resent the stereotypical “Brazilian Bombshell” image she cultivated and attempted to break free of it with limited success.

On 4 August 1955, Miranda unknowingly suffered a mild heart attack while performing during the taping of an episode of The Jimmy Durante Show. She finished the show but died the following morning after suffering a second heart attack.

I have had this song in my head, and wanted to share!


Lucille Ball imitating Carmen Miranda.  If you were on the Lucille Ball show, or mentioned, it was as good as being on Oprah’s show in recent times.

Lyrics-

O meu ganzá faz chica chica boom chic
P’rá eu cantar o “Chica Chica Boom Chic”
Com a canção do “Chica Chica Boom Chic”
Meu coração faz chica chica boom chic

E vem a saudade da Bahia
Onde o samba tem, canjerê também
Numa batucada
Boom chic boom boom boom boom

É brasileiro o chica chica boom chic
Com um pandeiro fazendo o chica boom chic
{ From: http://www.elyrics.net }
E para terminar chica chica boom chic
Vocês devem cantar o “Chica Chica Boom Chic”
Boom chic boom boom boom boom
You don’t make sense the “Chica Chica Boom Chic”
But it’s meant to chica chica boom chic
That’s all you’ve got to say
Chica chica boom chica chica boom chica chica boom

The beautiful Ibis

January 13, 2013 23 comments

 

Some people are bird lovers, some are cat or dog people.

I love most animals in the world, and enjoy learning more about them – where they live – what they do.  The colors, the behaviors.  How much are they like us, how are they different?

This world is amazing, and we need to remember how beautiful, diverse, powerful and yet fragile it can be.

Today I was looking into a beautiful group of birds called the Ibis.

Some of the types of Ibis are white, grey, or black.  Standing out is the Scarlet Ibis, who comes in shades of red and orange.

Lots of info at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ibis

They live in warmer climates, and use their long bills in the marsh to find small crustaceans to eat.

Their range is  Florida, the West Indies, Europe, southern Asia, Australia, and Africa, North and South America.  They have been hunted for food, and their feathers.  They are no longer found in Egypt, but were very important to the ancient culture there (see excerpt below).

There are 28 current species if Ibis, and 2 extinct species.

They are graceful to watch.

They nest above in trees.

Interesting ancient history connection found at http://animals.howstuffworks.com/birds/ibis-info.htm

Which Bird Can Be Found in Ancient Tombs?

The ancient Egyptians worshiped many gods and goddesses. One of their most beloved gods was named Thoth (thohth or toht). Thoth was the patron of writing, astronomy, mathematics, law, magic, and healing. He was often drawn having the body of a man and the head of an ibis.

Ancient Egyptians mummified, or preserved, dead ibises and gave them as offerings to the gods. To mummify an ibis, the body of the dead bird was wrapped in many layers of cloth bandages. Some ibis mummies were placed in ibis-shaped coffins. Archaeologists have found large numbers of mummified ibises in ancient Egyptian sites.

The species of ibis most commonly mummified by the ancient Egyptians was the sacred ibis. The sacred ibis has white feathers and a bare black skin on its head and neck. This bird was common in Egypt during ancient times. It still lives today in many areas of Africa.

Ibises belong to the family Threskiornithidae. The sacred ibis is Threskiornis aethiopicus; the glossy ibis, Plegadis falcinellus; the white-faced ibis, P. chihi; the white ibis, Eudocimus albus; the scarlet ibis, E. ruber.

99 Red Balloons – Innocence and Violence

January 11, 2013 54 comments

99_Luftballons_single_cover

The 1983 album German group, Nena, had a war protest song that was sung in German, “99 Luftballons“.  Luftballons means Air Balloons.  It was very popular, and was re-written in English (not just translated).

In the story of the song, 2 children released 99 red balloons, and the governments interpreted that as an act of war.  Confusion and violence rising from innocence.

The song has been on my mind since the school shootings in Newtown, CT.  I grew up in Newtown, and was married in nearby Danbury in 1984.

The sound of Nena’s voice is innocent and wise at the same time.  Teaching us about peace and war in a child-like way.

I love the dancing on the video, and the styles.  Makes me feel like home.

Excerpt from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/99_Luftballons

“While at a June 1982 concert by the Rolling Stones in West Berlin, Nena’s guitarist Carlo Karges noticed that balloons were being released. As he watched them move toward the horizon, he noticed them shifting and changing shapes, where they looked like strange spacecraft (referred to in the German lyrics as a “UFO“). He thought about what might happen if they floated over the Berlin Wall to the Soviet sector.[3]“

German Version video

English Lyrics

Songwriters: Mcalea, Kevin (Eng Lyr); Karges, Carlo; Fahrenkrog-Petersen, Joer;

You and I, and a little toy shop
Buy a bag of balloons with the money we’ve got
Set them free at the break of dawn
‘Til one by one, they were gone

Back at base, bugs in the software
Flash the message, “Some thing’s out there”
Floating in the summer sky
Ninety-nine red balloons go by

Ninety-nine red balloons
Floating in the summer sky
Panic lads, it’s a red alert
There’s something here from somewhere else

The war machine springs to life
Opens up one eager eye
Focusing it on the sky
Ninety-nine red balloons go by

Ninety-nine Decision Street
Ninety-nine ministers meet
To worry, worry, super-scurry
Call the troops out in a hurry
[ From: http://www.elyrics.net ]

This is what we’ve waiting for
This is it boys, this is war
The President is on the line
As ninety-nine red balloons go by

Ninety-nine knights of the air
Riding super high-tech jet fighters
Everyone’s a super hero
Everyone’s a Captain Kirk

With orders to identify, to clarify and classify
Scrambling in the summer sky
As ninety-nine red balloons go by
Ninety-nine red balloons go by

Ninety-nine dreams I have had
Every one a red balloon
Now it’s all over and I’m standin’ pretty
In this dust that was a city

If I could find a souvenir
Just to prove the world was here
And here is a red balloon
I think of you and let it go
