Les feuilles mortes, en japonais

November 17, 2019

“Autumn Leaves,” composed by Joseph Kosma in 1945 with French lyrics by poet Jacques Prévert and titled “Les feuilles mortes” (“Dead Leaves”). The song became “Autumn Leaves” in 1947 when Johnny Mercer added English lyrics. The song was a big hit for Nat King Cole in 1955, who also recorded “Kareha” (“Dead Leaves”), this Japanese version. Can’t find the name of the Japanese lyricist.

Walk On By

November 10, 2019

“Walk On By,” written by Burt Bacharach, with lyrics by Hal David, recorded by Helen Shapiro, 1964. The Dionne Warwick version had been out for a few months before this was released. Ms. Shapiro, an East-End-born teenager, usually suffered at the hands of kitschy arrangers, but the influence of Bacharach thankfully prevails here. The singer is unknown in the USA.
