Subject: Anna Russell songs
From: GUEST
Date: 21 May 00 - 05:28 AM

I am actually trying to request several. the most important one at this time is one of her Christmas melodies entitled "Please, Santa Claus", , but "Schlumph", "A Lily Maid Sat Making Moan", "Ricky Ticky", "I'm Sittin' In the Bar All Alone", "Let Us Hang The Holly", and the classic "Wir gehen in den Automaten. True, these may not fit the true folk song stylings, but they are worth a good mention...

Well, Guest, I haven't found any of ehr lyrics online yet, but Columbia is reissuing her works on CD, so you should be able to track them down one way or the other. If you're a fan (not just searching for lyrics), I recommend ehr books as well. I've found two so far:"I'm Not Making This Up, You Know", and "The Power of Being A Positive Stinker". BTW, I believe that she's still alive, living in Australia.

The redoubtable Ms. Russell lives in Toronto the last I heard. She is sometimes still a guest on the CBC radio. I do have one of her albums that has "Schlumpf" as one of the songs "for singers with tremendous artistry but no voice". No lyrics are given in the notes.

It would be nice to have these lyrics here as well as on the CDs. I've got the two books mentioned, but am having troubles locating the third. Fred covered the other part on Anna. I have all but "The Anna Russell Songbook", the "Hansel & Gretel" video, and a video of her appearance in the movie "Kill Or Cure" (watch fast or you'll miss her)--probably will get it on cable soon. How many Anna Russell fan clubs can you find on the net? Besides on Yahoo. (It just happens to be mine.)

Chefcat, if you could post your fan club's address, I'd appreciate it. I could only find web pages on Yahoo and Google.

There will be some quizzes until November in the club, and there will be a lot more info after that. Discussions of your favorite Anna Russell routines and some of her lines will pop up now and then, whenever appropriate. I will again say join up with the Hoyataholot at http://clubs.yahoo.com/clubs/thehoyataholot

Just finished watching the First Farewell Concert and remembered the Old Sow Song is here. The verse this site's missing is "They went and they ate all the cabbages up. etc."

Well, what about vintage Anna Russell videos of her stuff?

It's not easy to find her on film when she was , err ,
not-yet-a-senior-citizen,
there are a bunch of videos of her when she got much older.

Warning: this video from her younger years
is mostly gibberish that is supposed to pass for Russian.
May be offensive to some.

"A Russian Song" [from the '60's]

SO sorry, the link didn't work. I tried, honest.

I am now listening to a video
(one of those videos with a stationary photo, just listening)
of Anna Russell at the Sydney Opera House,
doing her reader's-digest version,
not of Wagner's Ring cycle which everybody knows, but

of Mozart's Magic Flute. I have never heard this routine before.

And the brilliant thing is that when Anna Russell did one of these,
she stayed as close as possible to actual musicological research
and verifiable data. Of course her delivery makes people laugh,
but she is using literal, historical information.

Now, as to the topic spelled out in the opening post:

some of the songs requested appear on an Anna Russell recording
called "Anna Russell Sings Again??", according to the following
link, if I can get it to link.

On this excerpt, are these three Anna Russell parodies:

"Come, Let's Hang the Holly"
"Come, Lovely Death"
and the immortal
Cantata: "Wir gehen in dem Automaten," translated into English
as "We Went Into the Automat [And Ordered Eggs and Bacon]".

(as a classical music student at a major university,
I sat through perfectly straight performances, I will have you know,
that sounded little different from these parodies --
but on THOSE occasions you didn't dare laugh...)

KUDOS big-time to Stilly River Sage!
How she did it, I'll never know,
but she got the video link to work
in the 13th post on this thread.

So you can now watch Anna Russell singing her
gibberish-version "Russian Song"
AND trying to dance like a Cossack
in a tight satin gown.

thank you thank you!
