Mack the Knife:




Beyond the Sea:




Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You:




P.S. I know that some of my blogging friends have have Etsy stores? How do you like it? Was it hard to set up? Have you made any sells? Anything you can share with me would be well appreciated. I've been looking into, but I wanted to check with you guys first. Thanks.

Very cool indeed, thank you for the awesome tunes, just the right musical note (pun intended) to kick start the weekend off on! :)

Have a fantastic Friday, Keith!

Bobby Darin had a very contentious relationship with Irv Cottler who was Sintara's drummer. Cottler once told him that he should sing the songs and he will play the drums.
Bobby Darin was never a very serious singer. He was more of a teeny bopper commodity but he was good at what he did.

Have a great Friday Keith!

Darrin was alway one of my favorites. Like Sinatra, he had his own unique way of "putting over" a song. Too bad the movie with Kevin Spacey didn't do better.

mack the knife, with no doubt!

Keith said...

Hey Jessica. Thanks. I'm really glad you enjoyed those. I had been wanting to post about him. Enjoy your weekend. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey James. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. I never knew that about Bobby and Irv Cottler. Oh yeah. You are right about Bobby. Have a great weekend.

Keith said...

Are you on Etsy, Janet?

Definitely not hard to set up. I'm getting more exposure to my shop through my blog but I don't know that I've made any sales because of the blog yet. Adding as many tags as you can to your products is crucial as it helps people find your products easier. There is so much on Etsy now! It's really hard to wade through them all. Be as descriptive as you can in your product descriptions, be very specific about policies within your shop, returns, shipping etc.

You need to make the decision of whether you want to ship overseas or not. A lot of international people don't understand that shipping costs across the board have gone up in the US, I've even been called a liar about quotes that I've given international customers.

The listing costs are much more affordable that Ebay and the listings last much longer, although the longer they are up the more stuff from other people will pile on top of it and your products will be pushed to the back so to speak.

Anyway, if you have any other question, I'd be more than happy to answer them!

What a swinging rendition of Sea - I think Harry Connick recorded it later

Tina said...

He was the best all-around entertainer, a performer who could do it all and provided so much in so little time! Thanks for posting and keeping his music alive!

Maria Jensen said...

I love his version of "Can't take my eyes of you"
Have a great Friday : )

Great post Keith - digging the "Beyond the Sea" video clip. Hope your weekend is cool and mellow.

Deine kleine Schwester said...

Hey Keith,
thanks for sharing! In this case I have to confess: I knew his music before I even knew his name.... I became aware of Bobby Darin first at "Beyond the sea", the film with Kevin Spacey, pretty odd. Shame on me?! :)
Wishing you a fabulous swinging weekend, Keith!

Hey Mrs. B. Thanks so much for the information about Etsy. It's something I had noticed around some blogs. I was curious about it. I'm in the early stages of checking it out. I had wanted to know what people here might think of it. I figured maybe somebody would have some sort of experience with it. Thanks again. I definitely will probably pick your brain about it. Take care. Enjoy your weekend.

Keith said...

Hey Dave. Thanks. That's such a cool tune. I really dig it. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Sofie. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Nothing to be ashamed of. I'm just glad you know his music and who he is now. That's the important thing. I enjoyed the film. I wish it had gotten more attention. Enjoy your weekend.

So cool... all great videos, but I'm kind of (still) loving Mack the Knife. xxx
Happy weekend.

mom & son said...

hi keith!
how are you?
where is he singing, anyway?
no wonder why he's a singer because
he has a good voice.
