Song of the Day Anniversary – “Mack the Knife” – Bobby Darin


Yes, it’s six years of Song of the Day, which started back in 2009 with “Don’t Dream It’s Over” by Crowded House. I’ve posted around 2450 songs – how many have you been familiar with?

I know – nobody reads all my entries or listens to all the songs. I still have fun posting them, though, and the daily walk down memory lane is worth it.

“Mack the Knife” is my sixth anniversary song because it happens to be the #1 song on the day I was born. Bobby Darin really swings it, man. Its original title, in the Brecht/Weill musical The Threepenny Opera, is “Die Moritat von Mackie Messer”.
