Thank you, Dan for a lovely song again.I enjoyed and it made me feel nice and jubilant .
I got all the words in one go:)
Here are they--
"Thanks for reminding me about the artist Max Raabe who has made a recording of it as well. Here someone has uploaded it to Youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YgIpFREIwJg"
Thanks! I've heard a few other recordings by Max Raabe and the "Palast Orchester" but I hadn't heard this one. It's very nice, and it has nice, very clear diction.
I like the Palast Orchester recordings because they are faithful to the original style of the 1930s. However, I don't like Max Raabe's singing so well, and I wonder how well he knows English. There's not a thing wrong with it. He has a slight but definite accent, a "charming accent." But he does not bring out the meanings of the words; it's as if he's listened to recordings and is trying to reproduce the sounds of the spoken English without actually understanding their meaning. It's quite different from Fred Astaire, even though both of them sing precisely in time with the music, in the style of the time.
