1957 (A young Shirley Bassey recorded this Johnny Mercer / Harold Arlen American Songbook Standard back in 1956 and it was released as a track on her first LP in 1957. One of the songs from this LP, 'Born To Sing The Blues' was released as a single in 1956. Shirley has recorded & performed many genre's of music over her past 58+ years in show business due to her powerful voice & musical instincts, but jazz & the blues were among the first that she mastered. ABOUT this song: "Blues in the Night" is a popular song which has become a pop standard and is generally considered to be part of the Great American Songbook. The music was written by Harold Arlen, the lyrics by Johnny Mercer, for a 1941 film begun with the working title Hot Nocturne, but finally released as Blues in the Night. The song is sung in the film by William Gillespie. Arlen and Mercer wrote the entire score for the 1941 film Blues in the Night. One requirement was for a blues song to be sung in a jail cell. As usual with Mercer, the composer wrote the music first, then Mercer wrote the words. Arlen said, The whole thing just poured out. And I knew in my guts, without even thinking what Johnny would write for a lyric, that this was strong, strong, strong! When Mercer wrote "Blues in the Night", I went over his lyric and I started to hum it over his desk. It sounded marvelous once I got to the second stanza but that first twelve was weak tea. On the third or fourth page of his work sheets I saw some lines—one of them was "My momma done tol' me, when I was in knee pants." I said, "Why don't you try that?" It was one of the very few times I've ever suggested anything like that to John. When they finished writing the song, Mercer called a friend, singer Margaret Whiting, and asked if they could come over and play it for her. She suggested they come later because she had dinner guests—Mickey Rooney, Judy Garland, Mel Tormé, and Martha Raye. Instead, Arlen and Mercer went right over. Margaret Whiting remembered what happened then: They came in the back door, sat down at the piano and played the score of "Blues in the Night". I remember forever the reaction. Mel got up and said, "I can't believe it." Martha couldn't say a word. Mickey Rooney said, "That's the greatest thing I've ever heard." Judy Garland said, "Play it again." We had them play it seven times. Judy and I ran to the piano to see who was going to learn it first. It was a lovely night. A few of the great singers/musicians from the past who recorded this song were Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Rosemary Clooney, Dinah Shore, Judy Garland, Bing Crosby, Woody Herman, Louis Armstrong, Jo Stafford, Doris Day, Billy Eckstine, Julie London, Cab Calloway, Kate Smith, Van Morrison, The Group Chicago, and of course, Shirley who was a teenager when she recorded it. A few of the younger generation artists who have recorded this song include Amy Winehouse, Eva Cassidy, and Katie Melua. ALL versions are Great, because the song itself is a Classic for ALL generations! LYRICS: My mama done tol' me, when I was in pig tails My mama done tol' me, " Child a man'll sweet talk" And give ya the big eye, but when the sweet talkin's done A man is a two-face, A worrisome thing who'll leave ya to sing the blues in the night Now the rain's a-fallin', hear the train's a-callin, "Whooee!" (My mama done tol' me) Hear dat lonesome whistle blowin' 'cross the trestle, "Whooee!" (My mama done tol' me) A-whooee-ah-whooee ol' clickety-clack's a-echoin' back th' blues in the night The evenin' breeze'll start the trees to cryin' and the moon'll hide its light when you get the blues in the night Take my word, the mockingbird'll sing the saddest kind o' song, he knows things are wrong, and he's right From Natchez to Mobile, from Memphis to St. Joe, wherever the four winds blow I been in some big towns an' heard me some big talk, but there is one thing I know A man is a two-face, a worrisome thing who'll leave ya to sing the blues in the night

1979 (Veteran Vocal Powerhouse, Shirley Bassey, BELTS out this Classic which was a Hit for her in the 1960's - This version is from From her 1979 TV Variety Show) Shirley first recorded and released the song, I Who Have Nothing' as a Columbia Single in 1963. ABOUT the song: "I (Who Have Nothing)" is based on the Italian song "Uno dei tanti," (English: "One of Many") with music by Carlo Donida and lyrics by Giulio "Mogol" Rapetti.[1] "Uno dei tanti" was released by Joe Sentieri in 1961. The lyrics for "I (Who Have Nothing)" were translated into English by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller. Shirley Bassey released the song (produced by George Martin) in September 1963, reaching #6 on the UK charts. She performs the song at almost every live concert she gives, and it is on many of her compilation albums, including I Am What I Am with the London Symphony Orchestra, and her 1989 album La Mujer where she sings it in Spanish ("Hoy No Tengo Nada"). She has also been instrumental in making Donida's music known to English speaking audiences through arranging for translations from the Italian, having performed with the composer conducting his own music on Italian television. LYRICS: I, I who have nothing I, I who have no one Adore you and want you so I'm just a no one, with nothing to give you but oh I love you You, you buy her diamonds Bright, sparkling diamonds But believe me, dear, when I say That she can give you the world (sometimes: That you can give her the world) But she'll never love you the way I love you You can take her any place she wants To fancy clubs and restaurants But I can only watch you with My nose pressed up against the window paneI, I who have nothing I, I who have no one Must watch you, go dancing by Wrapped in the arms of somebody else When darling it is I Who love you I Love You.... I Love You... I Love You........

LYRICS: Oh, they say some people long ago Were searching for a diffrent tune One that they could croon As only they can They only had the rhythm solved They started swaying to and fro They didn't know just what to use And this is how the blues really began They heard the breeze in the trees Singing weird melodies And they made that the start of the blues And from a jail came the wail Of a down-hearted frail And they played that As part of the blues From a whippoorwill Out on a hill They took a new note Pushed it through a horn Till it was worn Into a blue note And then they nursed it Rehearsed it And gave out the news That the Southland gave birth to the blues And then they nursed it Rehearsed it And gave out the news That the Southland gave birth to the blues That the Southland, they gave birth to the blues
