These Foolish Things

Words by Eric Maschwitz, Music by Jack Strachey, 1935 

  

Charlie Hickox, Piano


 This was my mom's favorite song. We had the original single-sheet music on our piano, or tucked within its bench. 

Today, I call this the most beautiful, well-constructed popular song ever written...and not only for the lyrics of its incomparable bridge, which recall the Latin of Julius Caesar:Veni, vidi, vici !


This rendition is the live product of FarPlay's latest version, which somehow has eliminated all traces of latency from a twenty-mile-apart collaboration.
