January 22, 1931 Happy Birthday Sam Cooke!
I love Sam Cooke and sing his material all the time. When I saw it was his birthday today I looked through a list of all the songs he’d recorded and chose Ain’t Nobody’s Bizness! And then I had to wikipedia the song because I always thought it was Taint Nobody’s… and then there was the business or bizness or biz-ness discrepancy in the title. Well apparently its been titled several different ways! so confusing.
I actually wanted to sing A Change is Gonna Come but this darn laryngitis is kicking my butt and I had to pick an easier song.
hey, so I’m at the Red Lion tonight with the Stingers. It’s 19 degrees out at the moment so I think coming on in from the cold into the best bar on Bleecker Street would be a good idea. We start around 10. See you there!
