The Black Rider, The Black Rider, Tom Waits [205]


Guest host Jeu Jeu La Foille returns for a second week looking at the opening tracks from The Black Rider, discussing with Martin and Sam the presence and absence of Wilhelm and Käthchen in the play and the music, the mirror the play provides to Burroughs' own history, and how "beauty" and "ugliness" represent themselves through music and performance. website: songbysongpodcast.com twitter: @songbysongpod e-mail: songbysongpodcast@gmail.com Music extracts used for illustrative/review purposes include: The Black Rider, The Black Rider, Tom Waits (1993) Pirate Jenny (English-language TV performance, via YouTube), The Threepenny Opera, Lotte Lenya/Bertolt Brecht/Kurt Weill (1928/1966) We think your Song by Song experience will be enhanced by hearing, in full, the songs featured in the show, which you can get hold of from your favourite record shop or online platform.

Lyrics - The Black Rider Come on along with the Black Rider We'll have a gay old time Lay down in the web of the black spider I'll drink your blood like wine So come on in it ain't no sin take off your skin and dance around in your bones So come on along with the Black Rider We'll have a gay old time Anchors away with the Black Rider I'll drink your blood like wine I'll drop you off in Harlem with the Black Rider Out where the bullets shine And when you're done you cock your gun the blood will run like ribbons through your hair So come on along with the Black Rider We'll have a gay old time Come on along with the Black Rider I've got just the thing for thee Come on along with the Black Rider I want your company I'll have the veal a lovely meal that's how I feel May I use your skull for a bowl Come on along with the Black Rider We'll have a gay old time
