songs about roving, rambling and plain hard luck & photography from the other side …

when the sun set this evening I was standing in the same old place

© Willy-Brandt-Haus, Berlin, 2015, Florian Fritsch

When the sun set this evening I was standing in the same old place / When the sun set this evening I was standing in the same old place / I felt so much the better after seeing my baby’s smilin face / Wish I had a heaven, a heaven of my own / Well I wish I had a heaven, a heaven of my own / I’d give all you girls a real nice happy home (T-Bone Walker)


the rhythm of life is a jazz rhythm

© Justin Brown, Berlin, 2015, Florian Fritsch

The rhythm of life / Is a jazz rhythm / Honey / The gods are laughing at us / The broken heart of love / The weary, weary heart of pain,- / Overtones / Undertones / To the rumble of street cars / To the swish of rain / Lenox Avenue / Honey / Midnight / And the gods are laughing at us (Avishai Cohen, poem by Langston Hughes)


the sidewalk is a history book & a circus

© Yoni Zelnik, Berlin, 2015, Florian Fritsch

The sidewalk is a history book / And a circus / Dangerous clowns / Balancing dreadful and wonderful perceptions / They have been handed / Day by day / Generations on down (Avishai Cohen, poem by Joni Mitchell)
