My 'Track of the Week": 'Mack the Knife' (Performed by Lotte Lenya)

Written by Kurt Weill for his wife Lotte Lenya.
Sounds even more scary in the original German.

I never understood this song in English anyway.
Lotte has a lovely face, but she frightens me.
Shame about the fag!

Yeah, she'd look much more attractive if she was smoking a pipe.

You've seen the video of Vladimir Putin singing "Blueberry Hill" to an uncomfortable audience? Everybody would have had a lot more fun if he'd sang this.
