  1. Gute gesang! Mit einigen Teilen, den Wurzeln in Hamburg, muss ich, genug diesen Song an die Berliner antworten 🙂 🙂 🙂 ! ! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_HQ4OP2tLbA

    • I love NIna Hagen’s “The Lady is a Tramp” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hETw3-OMUHo

      I think the band does a credible job swinging, and NIna remains true to her punk origins. The best punk always has some swing in it. And there are times when Django strums his guitar as loud as any rock musician, so there’s some punk in jazz too (the amazing thing for me is that when great jazz musicians get loud, they don’t distort, whereas punk often seeks distortion as a conscious effect).

        • It’s funny how the line “I’ve got 50 cents more than I’m gonna keep” seems to be opposite to the idea of spending cash: if you keep everything but spend only 50 cents, you’re not following the kind of “spend it all on having fun now” attitude in the rest of the lyrics.

          But there’s another meaning outside of the literal words, I think, which confounds ordinary logic and the prescriptive rules of grammarians …

          So the music expresses ideas that are not conventionally possible. The music substrate lets the words seem meaningless or self-contradicting; but the logic of the words is subservient to the sound and the story told by the notes and rhythm.

          My guess is that Adorno focuses on the literal meaning and ignores the musical context, and that leads him to draw unhappy conclusions about jazz … In a way he’s right but in another way he’s missing another communication channel …
