I have never viewed 'Moon River' as a torch song. As I see it, it has nothing to do with unrequited love, but is about ambitions for the future. But of course that is just my take on it.


Red Griffen surely the body actions as well as the voice add to what constitutes sultry. Your definiton is too narrow I think.

Pedro asks:

I've probably asked this before but why is a minor key sad? Is it sad to a blackbird?


peter comments:

That is an interesting question. I often observe the dogs in my Soi. (Street)

Sometimes they have a doleful look and other times the same animal looks happy. Dogs have happy barks and mournful howls.

It is plain to see some that creatures have limited emotions and they pick up on the nuances of sound... whether that extends to musical notes I do not know. When one begins to ask question one is always, at least I am, struck by how little we know.

How about shoving him jail for his dishonesty and rewarding for his goodwill. He is after all only half a thief. They could toss a coin.

I don't understand it


peter says: It is quite possible for one industry to flourish while another is in the doldrums. Farming is an industry now and sometimes the returns of farming are poor due to the squeeze from food retail outlets to be competitive. Supermarkets now days have such purchasing lever that the farmer is held almost to ransom. Most farming industries are subsidised and we do not pay the true cost of food production.

Richard dear boy you said: In the middle of The History of Rasselas, Prince of Abissinia by Samuel Johnson. Can't believe I haven't read this before.

Is that in the Beano or the Dandy?
