Bring Back Big Band

I’ve always been a fan of Big Band music.  Glenn Miller is, of course, king.  Here’s one of my faves plus lyrics as per my uszh.  Enjoy, my lovelies.

P.S.  Hope you like my new site design.

THE LITTLE MAN WHO WASN’T THERE
(Harold Adamson / Bernie Hanighen)

Glenn Miller & His Orch.(vocal: Tex Beneke) – 1939
Larry Clinton & His Orch.(vocal: Ford Leary) – 1939
Bob Crosby & His Orch.(vocal: Teddy Grace) – 1939
Jack Teagarden & His Orch.(vocal: Teagarden) – 1939
Mildred Bailey – 1939

(Tex Beneke whistling)

GLENN MILLER: Hello there, Texas, whatcha say? Are you whistling in the dark just to scare the ghost away?

TEX BENEKE: I know there’s something following me that I can’t see Someone sure laid an awful hex on me!

GLENN MILLER: A hex? Ah, Tex, that’s pretty far-fetched Man, I’d say you’re just a little bit tetched!

TEX BENEKE: You’d got a load of what I saw last night You’d pass the Yankee Clipper on its maiden flight!

Last night I saw upon the stair
A little man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
Oh, how I wish he’d go away

When I came home last night at three
The man was waiting there for me
But when I looked around the hall
I couldn’t see him there at all

Go away, go away
Don’t you come back any more
Go away, go away
And please don’t slam the door…..(SLAM!)

Last night I saw upon the stair
A little man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
Oh, how I wish he’d go away
