The second version of the song and different from the folk version i did with Deej.
The inspiration† for this came about† via a Harry Nilsson album of standards from the 30s/ 40s.Also from Scott Walker.
Mike arranged,produced and sang on this one.
I wrote the lyric( also different) and came by† the new melody.

SONGS FROM THE PARLOUR

V
Wind is howling at my front door
†trying hard but† won't get in
†Hallway clock just struck midnight
† and i† can't sleep a wink again
C
† † So it's songs from the parlour†
† † †with her filling up my† mind
† † †Carrying me off to† summer nights
† † † † †back to happier times.
† † † †Song from the parlour†
† † † † †then she left me behind
† † † † †Songs from the parlour
† † † † † songs for old times
† † † † ††
B
† † † Pour a† glass of whiskey†
† † †smoke another cigarette
† † † picture her by the fire†
† † †that someone i can't forget
V
† † † This rooms† my refuge from† the world
† † † † warm, cosy† on this cold cold night
† † † †Might even† drift and sleep tight
† † † † †waking† well into daylight
V† † ††
† † † † † Came† here when i was a kid
† † † † † †to think things out on my own
† † † † † † My dad would sometimes come in
† † † † † † † son,you spend too much time alone


Chorus

Old age creepeth... and I too do not remember DJ's version, Travis:

Regardless, I enjoyed my listen. I will follow Lane's lead and do some searching. Zee does it again!

Thanks for sharing. ----Dave

Travis

Travis (and Mike),

This is a pretty listen . . . wonderfully put together. Iíll confessómy first listenóit was so different from the Travis/Deej version that I wasnít sure what to make of it. But Iím on my fourth or fifth listen, and Iím digging it more with every spin. So smooth! Really good stuff!

All the best,

Deej

Hi Travis,

I am a newbie over here at JPfolks.

I really like the perfectly smooth vocals and production on this song. Lot's of dynamics in music makes for an enjoyable listen.

Hey Guys,

Thanks for the early 50's sound. I enjoyed this, haven't heard this soft pop/jazz sound in a long time. I used to listen some to Michael Frank's back in the early 80's who kind of revived this sound with a little less vintage approach. This one feels like the more original vibe. You can hear Big Band 40's influence yet also a 50's decade influence as well--which would have been the time period before Elvis, Fats Domino, Chuck, Jerry, kind of stole the radio air waves, but the Platters fought back along with some others. I'm not sure my explanation is real accurate, just rambling a bit from memory as a child when I first listened to radio and a few 45's my older sister and mom brought home.

Mike I'm sure enjoys producing so many different genres/vibes--well done Mike. John, the lyrics work quite well with this music vibe--well done.

Thanks Ed
We intended it to be this way and i'm glad it worked for you.
A bit different from the usual JPF postings but it's good to try out new old ideas!
