Mack The Knife How Ella Fitzgerald Redefined A Classic
The spotlight has a certain psychological effect that can cause the brain to do strange things.
For example, if you’re in a play and you know your lines backwards and forwards in rehearsal, the effect of the spotlight could still make you trip up on opening night. It wouldn’t be the first time it’s happened, and luckily for you, you’d be in very good company.
To wear an ugly dress.
Just as Ella Fitzgerald
Could have sung the phone book
And made it sound like angel song,
These models with their perfect teeth,
Flawless skin, giraffe-like bodies,
Draw me to their faces.
But with you and me,
People would see an ugly dress.
