Leiber schmeiber. Who he?

Your paper boy is tardy on his round (US: route) - this was reported several days ago. clown

In the worlds of rock 'n' roll and rhythm & blues, there's few names more important, fo sho.

Wikipedia (and felix the researchinest cat) tells us:

The first commercial recording of a Leiber & Stoller song was Jimmy Witherspoon's 'Real Ugly Woman' in 1950, hear it here: http://www.we7.com/song/Leiber-Stoller--Jimmy-Witherspoon/Real-Ugly-Woman-04--51?m=0

You can hear the first Leiber & Stoller song to be a best seller here http://www.4shared.com/audio/hypx7pR2/Charles_Brown_-_Hard_Times.html. Recorded in 1951 and a Top Ten R&B hit in early '52.

...this thread's a great read. I was unaware of Leiber but I heard Peggy sing that song ages ago. I was very young and didn't hear/remember the verses, but the chorus has always stayed with me...it comes as a surprise to hear the lyrics (and Mann's story).

...I always sang the chorus with gusto Shocked

study wiki also says:
One difference between the story and the song is that the narrator in Mann's story finally has a sensation to feel free when he sees the sea for the first time and laments for a sea without a horizon.

...this may be an inspirational source:

The Psalms
46
To the chief Musician for the sons of Korah, A Song upon Al'amoth.
(King James Bile)

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed,
and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;

Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled,
though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.

There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God,
the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High.

God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved:
God shall help her, and that right early.

The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved:
he uttered his voice, the earth melted.

The LORD of hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.

Come, behold the works of the LORD,
what desolations he hath made in the earth.

He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth;
he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder;
he burneth the chariot in the fire.

Be still, and know that I am God:
I will be exalted among the heathen,
I will be exalted in the earth.

The LORD of hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.


edit: I had to look up 'selah':

selah
— n
a Hebrew word of unknown meaning
occurring in the Old Testament psalms,
and thought to be a musical direction
[C16: from Hebrew]

selah
1530, Hebrew word occurring frequently
at the end of verse in Psalter. Supposed to be
a liturgical direction, perhaps meaning "pause,"
or perhaps a musical direction to raise the voice
(cf. Heb. base s-l-l "to raise, lift").
