Ooh, what they sayin'

Last night we had a geat dinner at Kiko and Teresa's place with his neice Diana and her boyfriend Antonio. A little after midnight we turn out into the streets for a drink and inevitably we bounce around until five in the morning. Much can be written as I have done before in previous blogposts from captured little moments in the evening which however small seem to have bigger auras about them... but I think I'll set the little fishies free this time.

Catch and release storytelling.

What seems to be a prime candidate for comemorization, the taxidermy of blogging, another butterfly pinned to the board.... a song that can be heard in most bars in Tossa, a song that I would like to select as emblematic of a night out bending elbows in the bars of the seaside sleepy town of Tossa de Mar: Louis Prima's "Just a Gigolo".

Just A Gigolo

I'm just a gigolo
And everywhere I go
People know the part I'm playin'
Paid for every dance
Selling each romance
Ooh, what they sayin'

And there will come a day
When youth will pass away
What will they say about me
When the end comes I know
They'll say "just a gigolo"
Life goes on without me

I'm just a gigolo and everywhere I go
People know the part I'm playin'
Paid for every dance
Selling each romance
Ooh, what they sayin'

But there will come a day
When youth will pass away
What will they say about me
When the end comes I know
They'll say "just a gigolo"
Life goes on without me

***

I ain't Got Nobody (medley)

'Cause I ain't got nobody
Nobody cares about me
Nobody, nobody cares for me

I'm so sad and lonely
Sad and lonely, sad and lonely
Won't some sweet mama
Come and take a chance with me
Cuz I ain't so bad

That's Tossa.

Best sung after a few glasses of wine and a couple of NoCanDo's on the rocks.

but it's that old black magic that is weaved so well with Keeley that says it all about Mr.Prima, without her, it's as you described just something to drink with, she made it worth the listen>>
