Wow, actually tuned in a moment *before* the show began. And look at those elegant dancers, such a sight!

Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/21/13 7:17pm G:

Just a guess but -- I bet the song title (I wasn't here at the very start) is "Wir werden wissen" (we will know).

The most famous mathematician of the 20th century, Hilbert, famously said about the human search for truth, in his retirement speech: "We must know. We will know." It's a pretty well known saying in German...

I was stuck in a car listening to CBC. They had some great interviews but some the summaries were off.

the celebrations and cheering on social media over the "victory" was a bit hard to take; the whole thing is bleak, nothing is worth cheering about.

hello monica and all listeners, good evening to you all
Avatar Sun. 4/21/13 7:42pm david_:

the media failed so many times in the past week, making a few racist insinuations along the way. this should be the major networks' downfall. will it be? no.
Avatar Sun. 4/21/13 7:44pm doca:

are you talking about the boston bombing? i wanted to know more about it.
  Sun. 4/21/13 7:44pm trish:

I checked in periodically to the Reuters liveblog. DIdn't watch even a second of a 24:7 tv news station.

Avatar Sun. 4/21/13 7:46pm Monica:

hello, doca, yes... bloopy, the "usa, usa" moment was weird...david_ i hear ya...
  Sun. 4/21/13 7:46pm trish:

Though, truth be told, I haven't watched anything from a 24:7 news channel for a few years, now. Too much ego.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/21/13 7:48pm Andrew Waterloo:

CBC did some excellent interviews with people who lived in the neighbourhood and the older brother's wrestling coach. They also played the full scrums from the aunt and uncle. Still they kept saying the aunt was saying they were innocent, when she was really saying that she wasn't going to accept that her nephews would commit such an atrocity without seeing some evidence.

SR is more like I can't believe it's not butter..
Avatar Sun. 4/21/13 7:49pm dk:

holy CRAP, "red light" is like some sort of rosetta stone for "it takes a lot to laugh, it takes a train to cry," which is far and away my favorite dylan tune. never knew that.
  Sun. 4/21/13 7:51pm trish:

"Too much ego" ? Probably more accurately stated as "too much crap". It lives on disaster or cardboard pap filler. Not my kinda quality news.
Avatar Sun. 4/21/13 7:51pm Monica:

dk, me neither! thanks for sharing that...andrew waterloo, yeah the locals were interestig for sure... ice in bkln -ha!....
Avatar Sun. 4/21/13 7:54pm dk:

i might be overstating the case a BIT, but the connection's definitely there, especially in the first verse.
Avatar Sun. 4/21/13 7:56pm deanland:

Mrs. Yankfan tells me she will be joining with Butter, sitting in the donut bed, reading those websites so she, too, can become self radicalized. Is it *self* radicalized if she does it with Butter (the dog who knows the path)?
Avatar Sun. 4/21/13 7:58pm Monica:

deanland, pretty sure that's when ladies like each other a lot when they get in the donut bed together...
Avatar Sun. 4/21/13 7:58pm doca:

monica, sometimes the music you play reminds me of the music the grandma character in mars attacks! listens, but i'm unable to say how much i find that awesome.
Avatar Sun. 4/21/13 8:00pm Monica:

doca - love it!! many thanks.

wiki: "written by Mort Dixon with music by Harry M. Woods. It was a hit for Art Mooney & His Orchestra in 1948 and was largely popularized by him. In modern times the song is perhaps most associated with Merrie Melodies cartoons, as it appeared in several of them."

wikipedia sez: "I'm Looking Over a Four Leaf Clover" is a song from 1927, written by Mort Dixon with music by Harry M. Woods. It was a hit for Art Mooney & His Orchestra in 1948 and was largely popularized by him.

  Sun. 4/21/13 8:11pm ice in bklyn:

Thank you everyone at Wfmu this week, for keeping it calm and respectful.
  Sun. 4/21/13 8:16pm cavorting with nudists:

Just a bit of pedantry: "Don't the moon look lonesome shining through the trees" is a much-used blues line that probably goes back so far no original can be definitively cited. Google it and you'll see that it turns up in a million lyrics. I'm pretty sure Uncle Bob came up with his own rhyming line for it though. Google "Don't my gal look fine when she's coming after me" and nothing comes up but references to the Dylan song.
Avatar Sun. 4/21/13 8:21pm deanland:

@cavorting with nudists: I got tangled up in blue looking that up, until I realized that there was blood on the tracks as I mixed metaphors, some of which were carpenters' wives.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/21/13 8:21pm Peter K.:


The definitive version of "I'm Looking Over..."

Before I was born my parents performed puppet shows as a side job & they prerecorded the vocals and music. Growing up I would listen to these tapes. They usually used classical music but one of their stories had the WEIRDEST MUSIC!!! I had no idea it was until about ten years ago when I heard it on, where else, WFMU. And it was Tom Dissevelt & Kid Baltan's Song of the Second Moon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/21/13 8:27pm sugarwolf:

so when I was little I listened to that, The Bye Bye Birdie soundtrack, the Threepenny Opera cast album, no wonder I am a weirdo.
Avatar Sun. 4/21/13 8:30pm dk:

ah, thanks CWN. consider me suitably chastened and educated with regard to dylan, merril moore, the moon, and the trees.

G- by who? oh i see, thanks!...dk- yeah!...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/21/13 8:33pm G:

I'm Looking Over was big for kid grossout song parodies, too. One I recall from the early 70s is:

I'm looking over
My dead dog Rover
That I overran before
One leg is missing
The other is lame
The third was run over by my toy electric train
You see there's no need explaining
The one remaining
Is out on the kitchen floor
I'm looking over
My dead dog Rover
That I overran before

@Peter K.
I was expecting Bugs. I'd nearly forgotten that. Thanks, too.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/21/13 8:42pm G:

The Tiny Hill version you played was on the charts in 1948 for Columbia, presumably a rival version to the Art Mooney version that made number one. I don't see the label info for Mooney, but I am guessing it might have been a corporate affiliate of Warner??? (given how much Warner Brothers' cartoons used the song in the late 40s and early 50s)...
  Sun. 4/21/13 8:45pm cavorting with nudists:

This song is like Gram Parsons and Emmy Lou Harris if Gram Parsons had a sex change.

one other little "four leaf clover" note: do read the "Personal Life" section of the wikipedia entry for the songwriter, Harry Woods. he was quite the charmer:
Avatar Sun. 4/21/13 8:57pm deanland:

@cavorting -- that GramParsons/EmmyLou comment is the best of the night! Mega uber kudos.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/21/13 8:57pm Jeff:

Hey, Mo - great show (of course).

Pedantic hat on - a little German writing / pronunciation tip:

In a word like "Immermannstraße", that funny "ß" thing which looks like a stylized upper-case "b" actually stands for two esses ("ss"). So it could also be written (and is pronounced) "Immermannstrasse".

So there.
Avatar Sun. 4/21/13 8:58pm Monica:

Thank you ALL for swingin' by tonight, it's been swell. Don't go ANYWHERE - Dave Mandl up next!!! Have a great week!
