MOOD INDIGO LYRICS - ELLA FITZGERALD (Primary Source #2)

"Mood Indigo" Lyrics by Ella Fitzgerald: You aint been blue; no, no, no. You aint been blue, Till youve had that mood indigo. That feelin goes stealin. down to my shoes
While I sit and sigh, "Go 'long blues".

Always get that mood indigo,
Since my baby said goodbye.
In the evenin' when lights are low,
I'm so lonesome I could cry.

'Cause there's nobody who cares about me,
I'm just a soul who's
bluer than blue can be.
When I get that mood indigo,
I could lay me down and die.

 

Annotation: Again this is another break up song. Her mood in this song is being descriped as "Mood Indigo" Because that is the feeling she got when this person left her. When she gets in that mood, all she can is cry and she also says she could even lay down and die. So you alredy know that, that is pretty deep. This is a classic song that everyone has heard of and people still listen to this today.

Louis Armstrong - Lazy River(Primary Source #1)

Louis Armstrong - Lazy River(Primary Source #1) | Jazz 1930's | Scoop.it
See the Lyric and the Meaning behind it
austin slaughter's insight:

Yeah, haa haa, so, haa haa, wait on wait on
Up lazy river where the old mill runMeet the lazy river with the noon day sunLinger in the shade of a kind ole treeThrow away your troubles, dream a dream of me, dream a dream of me
Up the lazy river where the robin's sungWakes to bright new mornin', as we live alongBlue skies up above everyone in loveUp the lazy river, how happy we will be, mama mama?Ohh, Up a lazy river
Ohh, you've goneBoy, my river my long riverUp the lazy river, hmm river, ohh you riverOhh, you've goneOhh you riverYou got that John AlexanderSwing out there on your ma's river boy

 

Annotation:This song is about just being lazy. It about just throwing all your troubles away and just being lazy, its like the Bruno mars Lazy song . The song has alot of repetition in it. Alot of people still listen and admire this song still today because it was written by a great and legendary musician of course.

All Of Me Lyrics - Billie Holiday(Primary Source #3)

All Of Me Lyrics - Seymour Simons /You took my kisses and all my love
You taught me how to care
Am I to be just remnant of a one side love affair

All you took
I gladly gave
There is nothing left for me to save

All of me
Why not take all of me
Can't you see
I'm no good without you
Take my lips
I want to loose them
Take my arms
I'll never use them
Your goodbye left me with eyes that cry
How can I go on dear without you
You took the part that once was my heart
So why not take all of me

 

Annotation: This song was wrote by Billie Holiday. This song is a break up song. You can tell by just reading the title. This song has aot of meaning to it even though it doesnt say much. And pretty much what he is saying is that, you took everything i gave too you and you just threw it all away. So why not just take all of me with you instead. All of the hard work and effort just gone.And yes people still do listen to this song today.

Louis Armstrong(Website #3)

Louis Armstrong(Website #3) | Jazz 1930's | Scoop.it
austin slaughter's insight:

Perhaps the most significant influence on the direction and development of jazz, and certainly the leading musician to emerge during its formative years, Louis Armstrong shared a birthplace with that of the genre he helped to create: New Orleans, Louisiana. Born in the city's dangerous Storyville District, Armstrong spent the earliest years of his life with his grandmother, eventually being delivered back into the care of his mother -- a woman whose circumstances of extreme poverty occasionally forced her to resort to prostitution as a means of survival.
