Fats Domino RIP
« on: October 25, 2017, 06:00:38 PM »
The great (in every sense of the word) New Orleans' musician/songwriter has left us at 89. I've loved classics as Blue monday,  Blueberry Hill (the rare tune that is at once sad and uplifting, or should I say bittersweet) or I'm in love again (the list could go on and on... ) since I was a kid, but there's a delightful minor hit of his that I rediscovered two years ago thanks to Georgie Fame (a Domino devotee), one of the few funny songs about suicide. RIP, Fat Man:

I reckon his version of When the Saints Go Marching In is the best one , still has an emotional impact on me. Hopefully the dj will give it a spin on Saturday. .
I wont make any deals with you , I've resigned. .
I wont be pushed, filed , stamped , indexed , briefed , debriefed OR NUMBERED!
