Then I’ll Be Tired of You

Then I’ll Be Tired of You—A. Schwartz/ E.Y. Harburg, 1934 (Recorded April 14, 2011) Here’s a tune from the same time period to contrast with the last one I posted, “I’ve Got to Pass Your House….” This one is a pretty ballad with a straightforward lyric of the type that invokes the nickname “Standard” for songs of this era. I toned down the FX this time, adding just a bit of EQ and reverb. Fats Waller did this in his swing time, but I’m partial to Jeri Southern’s smoky vocal turn, from which I learned to play the intro verse.

[There—fixed the number]
