Nobody

This saturday I attended a show of Ter bescherming van de jeugd, some fine new Belgian cabaret. If you haven't seen them yet, be sure to catch them when they perform somewhere in your neighbourhood. Dries and Tim did a hell of a performance, but one thing that hunted me for two days was the name of a song they hilariously adapted to 'Niemand' - everyone remember the growing madness in Dries' laughter while playing on his contrabass ? I knew I heared it before but couldn't put my finger on it. Untill now. I had one lead, I heard Johnny Cash's voice singing it in my head so I pulled out all the music I had from him and the answer is on American III: Solitary Man. Turns out it's a cover of Nobody, a very old song by Egbert Austin Williams. So if you have that CD in your collection, put it on and skip to number five or click here to listen. Enjoy, no thanks!
