Murphy Sings “Mack the Knife” at Puglia’s in Little Italy

karaoke, Shameless Self-Promotion 6 Comments

Just for bookkeeping I’m hitting the “karaoke” tag on this post, but actually this was the real deal. This guy Jorge Buccio is the 7-days-a-week entertainment for Puglia’s. He was one of the attendees on the recent financial seminar on the Caribbean cruise, and told me to let him know when I’d next be in NYC.

      Cue Ken B making a joke about Murphy’s singing lines, hairline, or waistline.

      Every. Single. Time.

        Cueersonal vendetta and tired single word sentences for emphasis from MF. Try at least a little wit or humor with your bill Tex.

      Every modern version is better than the original, Ken B:

      Mack The Knife (original)

      Here’s the original song ‘Die Moritat von Mackie Messer’ from the ‘Threepenny opera’ sung by Bertolt Brecht.

      If you can make it all the way through this, then congratulations are in order.

        I think this song is some kind of herald of the destruction of republics, or something:

        Lotte Lenya

        She accepted the part of Jenny in the first performance of The Threepenny Opera (Die Dreigroschenoper) in 1928 and the part became her breakthrough role. During the last years of the Weimar Republic, she was busy in film and theatre, and especially in Brecht-Weill plays.

    This is the first recording, from 1928 http://m.youtube.com/index?&desktop_uri=%2F

    If you look you can find Sting doing it. Bob is better.
