Song of the Week: Mack the Knife by Bobby Darin.

This song is a classic of the jazz age and has been sung by many people from Armstrong through to Sinatra. But even ol' Blue Eyes admitted that when he sang it he was just singing Bobby Darin's song. And when Sinatra admits the jersey has been retired, and he's just borrowing it... you gotta be doing something right.

I love the way the song keeps building and building throughout the piece. Not to mention Darin's 'screen' presence. A different era of cool, that's what that is.
