Today's song from the iTunes Library in
Take the 'A' Train
The song was publishe 1939.
The song is too much famous as the theme of the Duke Ellington Orchestra.
If there were anyone who didn't know this tune,
I'd like to ask of his/her story of life.
Anyway, the lyric is amazing, too.
"Sugar Hill" is the place that Ellington had lived in those days.
Here is a note that Billy Strayhorn went to Ellington's in NYC in 1939.
You must take the "A" train
To go to Sugar Hill way up in Harlem
If you miss the "A" train
You'll find you missed the quickest way to Harlem
Hurry, get on, now it's coming
Listen to those rails a-thrumming
All aboard, get on the "A" train
Soon you will be on Sugar Hill in Harlem

You can never capture it again. "
