Round Midnight 3
Thelonious Monk Lyrics

It begins to tell
'Round midnight, midnight
I do pretty well, till after sundown
Suppertime I'm feelin' sad
But it really gets bad
'Round midnight

Memories always start 'round midnight
Haven't got the heart to stand those memories
When my heart is still with you
And ol' midnight knows it, too
When a quarrel we had needs mending
Does it mean that our love is ending
Darlin' I need you, lately I find
You're out of my heart
And I'm out of my mind

Let our hearts take wings'
'Round midnight, midnight
Let the angels sing
For your returning
Till our love is safe and sound
And old midnight comes around
Feelin' sad
Really gets bad
Round, Round, Round Midnight

@Pam H Best of luck, and remember that there's never been an "incurable" disease that someone somewhere hasn't completely recovered from


Such wise words you speak. Music can be so therapeutic. Hope you are doing better now!

My wife has a master's degree in classical piano from the Soviet Union, and she says that Monk was the greatest pianist in America. She also said that his compositions are on the highest level. I played this piece for her, and all she could say was, "beautiful, beautiful." When it finished all she could say was, "Genius."


And to think she picked you.


@Jon This. Bought his Monk CD a few months back and it is awesome.

@Delfeayo Marsalis I'm just amazed I got a reply from Delfeayo Marsalis 🙏 Just checked out the video for the gig at "DirtyDog Jazz Cafe", apart for the lack of a pianist like Kirkland/Calderazzo/Hancock that's my idea of jazz in its most modern form (the symmetrical diminshed idea at 1:43 crotchet C, crotchet Eb, crotchet rest, 2 quavers F - F#, 2 quavers Ab - F#, 2 quavers F, Eb, 2 quavers D - C....) 🙏
