Anyone here remember this one by
The Chordettes; like, where were you the summer of 1957?

@neko nomad,
I was a very young thing, neko.
But somehow that song definitely rings a bell.
Maybe you sort of pick up stuff playing in the background, somewhere, and it stays lodged in your brain forever? Smile

I've been watching the Sopranos for the past few weeks.
A very intensive experience, let me say!

Anyway, at the start of the last season (6) now & that song in the opening credits (Woke up this Morning) is well & truly entrenched in my brain ....

Just found a Leonard Cohen version on youtube.
Did he write it?
I'll have to keeping Googling to find out, I guess.



Opening credits of the Sopranos:

@msolga,
Nope, a group called Alabama 3 wrote it. According to Wikipedia, "Alabama 3 frontman Rob Spragg wrote the song after hearing about 1996 murder case of Sara Thornton, who stabbed her husband after 20 years of abuse, mistreatment and neglect. The song is co-written with Jake Black. Contrary to widespread attribution, Leonard Cohen did not write or perform the piece." (Emphasis added, T.)

@Thomas,
Thanks, Thomas.
That was confusing for a bit, as one of the youtube posted comments attributed the song to Leonard Cohen. Also, you rarely see him performing other people's songs.
Anyway, now I know.
Interesting, the inspiration for the song.
I was wondering about that ....

@Thomas,
Hang on ....
Just read this again, Thomas:
Quote:

If he didn't perform the song, then who is the person performing the song in the "Leonard Cohen" video I posted above?
Hmmm ....this requires further investigation! Wink

@msolga,
The video you've given may have Cohen named and an image of him; but, the
sound is (to my ear) an exactelated match of Alabama 3 as can be found in the other A3 videos and sound clips available on the web for Woke Up...

Was Cohen involved? Difficult to say. When placing his name and the song title, there are several hits. No listing found so far of him performing it though.

@Sturgis,
You may well be correct, Sturgis.

I think that might be what Thomas was hinting at?

Maybe whoever posted that video got their wires crossed?
And, silly me, I believed them!

Anyway, it's a terrific song, hey?

@msolga,
It's a terrific piece, I like the beat. Having the good fortune of having such cheery lyrics, it was a natural for The Sopranos.

An interesting (and lengthier) Sopranos connected video for the song, seems to place the Alabama 3 band in there with Tony Soprano in his car (modern technology can work wonders at creating illusions).

@Sturgis,
That was terrific, Sturgis.
Thanks for posting it.
And now I know what the Alabama 3 actually look like! Smile

Here's an instrumental from way wa-a-y-y back, a Leroy Anderson piece, the Phantom Regiment;
listening to it brings up old flashbacks of doing parades in the fog
while at Fort Ord,usually called up for some retiring brass. Basic trainees
were a ready source of backup to serve any need for a parade that would
arise back then.
