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

SIX YEARS!

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”.
