Was, noch keine Bewertung für diesen sehr schönen Klassiker, noch nicht mal von southpaw? Also ich finde diese Version sehr gelungen. War 1959 eine sehr überraschende # 1 in den USA. Goldseller!
*****
Bertolt Brecht auf Platz 1 der USA!! Da konnte auch der Senatsausschuss für unamerikanische Umtriebe nichts dran ändern :-))

Schöne Version, viel mehr wert als nur 3 Groschen.
**
mit diesen kommunistischen Umtrieben kann ich nichts anfangen
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

sowas nennt man Scherz...

Sehr gute Interpretation des Kurt Weill/Bert Brecht Klassikers. Was das allerdings mit kommunistischen Umtrieben zu tun hat, ist mir schleierhaft.
Last edited: 09.03.2007 10:19

Unamerikanische, kommunistische Umtriebe??

Inhaltlich ist dieser Song (der übrigens eine Moritat ist) der Opener der Dreigroschenoper.
Darin geht es um den Gangster Mackie Messer, der im 18. Jhd. im Londoner Stadtteil Soho sein Unwesen getrieben hat (wie ich mich noch so ungefähr erinnern kann).
Übrigens war die Dreigroschoper ein absoluter Kassenschlager!
Als ich noch zur Schule ging, war's 'ne Pflichtveranstaltung im Musik- und im Deutschunterricht, wir wurden damit bis auf's Blut gepeinigt. Gehört aber eben halt zur Allgemeinbildung :-)

Und jetzt erkläre mir mal bitte jemand, was daran kommunistisch ist?! Weil's von Bert Brecht ist?

Zurück zum Song:
Ist das bekannteste und erfolgreichste Lied aus genanntem Bühnenstück, in der Version von Bobby Darin richtig schön anzuhören.

klassiker...

▓ Nu in 2007 toch wel een beetje saaie plaat van "Bobby Darin" uit oktober 1959 !!! Wat ik wel mooi vind is het complete orkest dat meedoet op de plaat en ook duidelijk aanwezig is !!! De plaat hield het ook maar 4 weken vol in de Hollandse hitlijsten van januari / februari 1960 !!!
******
Super!
****
Es reicht für 4*
*****
sehr gut
**
Das ist mir zu "old" ...
****
- nicht schlecht -
***
...nicht so mein Ding.

Netter Oldie aus Ende der 50er mit Fingerschnippen - knappe 4*...

Ordentlich.

this is awesome!
*****
... sehr gut ...
****
ist okay, gibt's auch in deutsch von Hildegard Knef, dort heißt er Macky-Messer (... und der Haifisch, der hat Zähne)
****
4* sind genug
gefiel mir auf deutsch etwas besser
*****
Prachtig nummer van de Crooner Bobby Darin

5 sterren dus :)
****
....klassiker der DreiGroschenOper - swingt ganz nett -...
*****
Un morceau assez plaisant.
******
Hat natürlich mit der Originalversion von Kurt Weill nix mehr zu tun - ist aber trotzdem großartig.
****
... prima Version ...
***
Der Song ist Kulturgut, die Version ist mir zu angestaubt. Da höre ich mir lieber Robbie an.

Gibt's auch im Rahmen der Reihe "Ein Jahr und seine 20 Songs (SZ Diskothek)".
