PALE BLUE NIGHTS, PALE BLUE TUNES

Chet Baker.
Maybe the finest heroin addict ever (and my favorite interpreter of this song):



Every spring I get as surprised by how light it is at very late and early hours(as I on the other hand always tend forget the darkness that comes with autumn). Lately I've woken up to work at five-something and the sun is already shining from a bright blue sky! Later I'm enjoying the pale blue May evenings by walking around the wooden houses and huge stone buildings with their massive courtyards in the next part of town, admiring the evening light, listening to Chet Baker and thinking of things, being able to relate to every word in every song. Well, except for My Funny Valentine perhaps.

Hi,
I don't think I;ve posted a comment before but I love your blog. Thanks for turning me on to Chet Baker. I am a newly 40 mom trying to become at least a half-assed singer at coffee houses and now I am inspired to do this song a little bit Baker and a litte bit Kitt (just a little me too). I love your style.

逆援助 said...

セレブ達は一般の人達とは接する機会もなく、その出会う唯一の場所が「逆援助倶楽部」です。 男性はお金、女性はSEXを要求する場合が多いようです。これは女性に圧倒的な財力があるから成り立つことの出来る関係ではないでしょうか?
