No Turns New York. By Paul Goldfinger ©

“No Turns.”  By Paul Goldfinger ©  Mid-town Manhattan.

FRANK SINATRA recorded this song in 1979 for his Trilogy album. It first appeared in a Martin Scorsese film in 1977 called New York, New York and was written by  Kander and Ebb (Cabaret, Kiss of the Spider Woman)  and first performed by Liza Minnelli in the film.

Robert de Niro rejected the first song written by Kander and Ebb for the movie, and our song below was the result of the re-do.  It was first titled, “The Theme From New York, New York.”

I recall hearing this song performed in that film by Liza.  It was a nightclub setting, with the spotlight on her. It struck me that it was an amazing song, and I remember wondering why I hadn’t heard it before.  It’s the only thing from that movie that I recall, although that’s true of many of the movies I have seen.—Paul @Blogfinger.

“Start spreadin’ the news, I’m leaving today

San Gimignano, Tuscan hill fortress. By Paul Goldfinger ©  Re-posted 2013.

 

San Gimignano is a medieval hill town near Siena.  It was founded in the fifth century BC as an Etruscan village. To protect the town, stone walls and tall towers were constructed and still exist–a tribute to Italian erectile engineering skills.

Stop by our rear  garden at 113 Mt. Hermon Way to see the metal sculpture called “The Etruscan Horse” by America sculptor Jo Ubogy.  Here is a link regarding that Ocean Grove work of outdoor art.

SARA BAREILLES    “She Used to be Mine” from the Broadway show Waitress.  Composer Sara Bareilles.

“She is messy, but she’s kind
She is lonely most of the time
She is all of this mixed up and baked in a beautiful pie
She is gone, but she used to be mine.”
