You Do Something to Me


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
This song always reminds me of Halloween and since I had this recording I made back in 1942 with Slash Marx and his All Midget Orchestra (recently digitally restored to almost listenable condition by TinTone Records), I thought I'd slap it up seeing how The Night of Weird, Spookyifing and Greedy Little Buggers" is coming fast!

Thanks again and hope you have a terrific week!

"You Do Something to Me" was written by Cole Porter in 1928 (PD)
Arranged and accompanied by the impeccable Alan McPike at the Semi-Mighty Wurlitzer
Vocal: MJK

Halloween is coming, yeah the little buggers cleaned me out last year. I better stash some candy away for myself this time.

Wonderful performance, no one else can do these like you can, dat be a fact! Excellent!

Yeah, I think I told you about the year we gave out these expensive, individually wrapped cheese sticks and the next morning, I found about 40 of them that the kids that thrown away in the yard (lovely bunch of kids around here, let me tell you--I think they are midgets Impsie). Glad you enjoyed this breezy little thing and thanks for the kind words! Michael

Really
good vocals. I put this on our turntable, grabbed my best gal, and we cut a rug to this song.

How does
this remind you of Halloween? The reference to Voodoo? But, it isn't the least bit scary. The scratchy sound is purposeful, I guess. If you had cut this vinyl back in '42 you'd be a really old guy, now. Michael, it so, so nice to hear these great old songs. Thank you.

Yes, the vinyl sound was intentional as I'm often told I "sound" like an old record or something, so what the heck! Thanks for listening and appreciated hearing from you. Hope you're doing well and that you have a mysteriously beautiful kind of week! Michael

Thanks Dave!
People might ask why I added the scratchy record sound effect, and the real truth is, I sounded too damned beautiful and thought it would be just a wee bit too much to tolerate, yanno? But all seriousness aside, appreciated hearing from you Dave--you take care now! Michael

michaelkoppenheffer said 3162 days ago (October 18th, 2010)
that voodoo
This one is a little deeper in your vocal range than some other mjk hits--it's a nice change, that lower range...

Nice rendition (as always)--much less weird, moreover, when I don't accidently have Bach Motets playing concurrently on iTunes (as I accidently did the first time, resulting in some weird choral backing integrated into the All Midget Orch.)

michaeljayklein said 3162 days ago (October 18th, 2010)
Thanks Michael
I have a rough time singing low notes unless I'm standing so I hope it passed! Bach motets and the all-midget orchestra--I think you may be on to a new thing! Appreciated your stopping by and hope to hear your latest very soon! Michael

Hey!
I'm only 53 years younger than you Dave (JUST kidding!) Thanks again partner--I think the crackling vinyl FX intimated or just plain scared some folks, but yanno, I hear weirder stuff than that on these sites, let me tell you! Thanks again--and take good care now, Michael

Oh brother,needle crackle,pure
nostalgia for dust busters ,impregnated record cloths and assorted other paraphanalia for removing dust and static.....Vinyl was a tactile listening experience,wasn't it?....cool song as well.....we will leave the something done to the imagination I think,especially as it conjures up hallowe'en in your feverish and obviously Ghoulish brow....Cheers ,Jarvo.

Ah yes....
In a way, I still rather miss those deals, but I still have my record collection (and I dare say, it may be one of the most complete record collections this side of the Monongahelia River, covering the 20s, 30s, and 40s and quite a bit of the 50s too). Thanks again Chris!

Tina Baby!
I did not hear from you last week and was about to drop you a line! Good to hear from you and hope you are doing well and staying out of those cheap gin mills (that last one you told me about sounded like a doozy, let me tell you!) Just as a general rule, stay out of joints that have signs out front like "Live Food/Chinese Music", etc. Thanks again and give my regards to Xiang and Yolanda!
