What’s up with Bobby Darin anyway?

Ok, Friday night, I’m relaxing after a grueling week where the ups and downs of the work week slip further away as the minutes pass.  I’m in short supply of cigars and scotch….basically i’m fresh out of both.  So, plan B. Fire up ye olde ITunes.  I’m getting my fill of AC/DC-Back in Black, Rene Zellweger doing a tune from Chicago, Commander Cody and his Lost Planet Airmen – Hot Rod Lincoln…..   yep, my playlists are a wild ride sometimes.

Next Bobby Darin. Ah here we go… no stogies and scotch, but this tune should get me in the Dean Martin lounge mood I love. Ultra Lounge Lizard mode here I come.  Artificial Flowers…

Alone in the world was poor little Anne
As sweet a young child as you’d find.
Her parents had gone to their final reward
Leavin’ their baby behind.

Hmmmm. Kind of a gruesome song. Poor little Annie ends up an abandoned orphan Popsicle.  Ok, whatever, it’s got a swing’n beat.  Let’s skip one… Darlin’ Clementine…  another fun classic by old Bobby boy…

I took the footbridge
Way ‘cross the water
Though she weighed
Two ninety-nine
The old bridge trembled
And disassembled… oops!
Dumped her into the foamy brine.

Hey… crack like thunder… hut, hut…
You know she went under… hut, hut…
Blowin’ bubbles down the line
Hey! I’m no swimm’a
But were she slimm’a
I might’a saved
That Clementine.

Nice dude !!!  You just let your gal drown.  Ok, one more shot for Mr Darin… I’m starting to get depressed.  Skip and let’s see what turns up….Mack the Knife….

Oh, the shark, babe, has such teeth, dear
And it shows them pearly white
Just a jackknife has old MacHeath, babe
And he keeps it, ah, out of sight
Ya know when that shark bites with his teeth, babe
Scarlet billows start to spread
Fancy gloves, oh, wears old MacHeath, babe
So there’s never, never a trace of red

WTF !!!!!!!  This guy is a closet psycho !!!!  Is it me ?  Really?!  frozen kids, full figured girlfriend in the drink, and fashionable serial killers.  Hey Bobby! how about something that’s not going to require a therapist and a restraining order. So much for a relaxing Friday night.

Where the hell is that Wiggles album? Fruit salad and Dorothy the Dinosaur should be uplifting after that.  Go ahead, you know you want to say it …..Yummy Yummy.
