Like
buttah. Have you ever pitched up to see if you sound like Streisand? How many characters are there inside that head? You are hilarious and I so enjoy what you do. :)

Hi Char
Indeed, I have pitched my voice up to see what it would sound like and I'm somewhere between Jo Stafford and Lady GaGa. Thanks for your kind remarks and for listening to this--glad you liked it! Michael

Hello Andrew!
"Alexandro" is a character I borrowed from an old Fats Waller recording (who was a real pip by the way!). Thanks for stopping in and your kind remarks--take care now! Michael

Thanks Crazee
This is a recording I did about a year ago and I was not always sure about how this sounds so very pleased you endorsed that part of it! Alas, the lyrics were not written by me, but if they had been, I'd have been very famous in musical circles and would have died around 1967! Thanks again and take care now, Michael

If Frank were alive...
I think he would be worried enough to " have you taken care of " ;) Great cut of an old favorite Michael.

Hey Guy!
Hope you have been doing well! You know, many years ago, my first piano teacher kind of prompted me to sing--I was maybe 14 or so. She said "You really do sound a bit like a very young Frank Sinat-ra" (she always pronounced his name that way--she was quite a character, but one of the best: she taught both Hayley and Juliet Mills how to sing). I just wish I could SING like he did! Thanks so very much for your comical and very kind words...take care now! Michael

10 Stars!!!
Oh this is so funny. Everyone of them want their 50 cents. I think it's safe you give it to them! So much fun hearing you sing again, I am always dancing. Thank you for sharing.

XOXO,
CC
michaeljayklein said 3383 days ago (May 21st, 2010)
Tina!
Yeah, why is that EVERYBODY on the street wants 50 cents from you? What's up with that deal? Why not make it 55 or 60 cents if they are brash enough to ask for so much? It's one of life's everlasting enigmas I tell you! Well, we took care of Alexandro and then moved so fast we were a blur! There were three of us running but we moved so fast it just looked like one person, you know. Thanks again Tina--send my regards to Tshiro and Yolanda, as always, xoxox Michael

Is this a remastered version of an unknown star lost in the archives of an evil record label executive?

Hey Billy!
No, I think this was originally one of those flimsy plastic records you could peel off the side of specially designated cereal boxes back in the late 1960s! Thanks again--I really appreciate your coming by to listen to my ol' stuff! Take care, Michael

Stupendous singing

Enjoyed thoroughly.

Hey there Ted...
I actually was in the middle of one of my allergic rhinitis deals when I recorded this some months ago--I'm really had to work hard to get around that so the positive reviews are quite reaffirming. Thanks very much for stopping in and have a great week! Michael

It All Depends On You
Did someone say you sound like Frank Sinatra already? Course, judging by the picture you got up, it's more like Dracula sings Sinatra. In any case, smooth solid performance here. Very snappy tune, and nice vocals to go with it. I enjoyed it - it got my toes tapping - thanks!

50 cents?
I'd pay more than that for this.

Really great work Michael. You have those "interludes" off to a tee!

Classy and entertaining.

Hi Telo!
I'm so happy you liked this old song--I do too! Often, I try mixing my things so that they somewhat replicate the sound of the decade the song might have been released--in this case, around 1955 or so. I actually have these neat plug-in filters that somewhat create the "sound" of record companies at different periods (i.e, Columbia, 1940, Decca 1945 and I used Capital 1955 for this one!) You take care and glad to see you here at Macjams. Michael

Okay Michael!
I absolutely am going to take two 50 cent pieces, buy a lottery ticket , win millions and back you on broadway! You are so amazingly talented, first of all, I listen to the song which is pure entertainment at it's best, then I have to always read all of your comments and especially your replies, so inevitably because you have so many I listen to the song like 5 times, your music always makes me remember growing up watching old Frank Sinatra, Gene kelley, Danny kaye, Bing Crosby and Bob Hope and wanting to be them sooooo badly, and you are! Them only better!

I Can't Get Enough!!
I keep listening again & again because listening to you brings me so much joy! I know I keep repeating myself but I'm always taken aback by the Wondrous effect your performances have on me!!! You're Incredible!!
michaeljayklein said 3380 days ago (May 24th, 2010)
it's because...
...(and shhhhh!) I have these little subliminal messages playing in my songs ("you will like this dammit, you will like this dammit, you will like this dammit") and I only reveal that secret here in the hopes that some poor mope out there will actually believe I'm telling the truth.

Yeah, I posted this elsewhere about a year ago and since then some have borrowed some my "shtick" from it, but that's very flattering.
