Re: One-year countdown thread!
Yeah. I continue to be amazed at all the songs I thought were original works but were only covers of earlier work.
WIKI: "Mack the Knife" (Orignal) or "The Ballad of Mack the Knife", originally "Die Moritat von Mackie Messer", is a song composed by Kurt Weill with lyrics by Bertolt Brecht for their music drama Die Dreigroschenoper, or, as it is known in English, The Threepenny Opera. It premiered in Berlin in 1928 at the Theater am Schiffbauerdamm.
