People in Trouble

 
      Film Noir has a mood that everybody can feel. It's people in trouble, at night, with a little bit of wind, and the right kind of music. It's a beautiful thing.

Thy Gold


                                      There is thy gold , worse poison to men's souls
                                      Doing more murder in this loathsome world

They Got Tight ......



                  ........While the drummer and the bass fiddler made shock waves on the roof Bolling raised his voice and began to belt it out. About how he followed her up and down and around, and underground, up Russian Hill and Nob Hill and Telegraph Hill and across the Bay Bridge and back by way of the Oakland ferry. So he found the Sphinx on Market Street cadging drinks and they got tight and they danced on the golden asphalt of delight.

What Can Matter



Then the rain begins to fall, pitter-patter, pitter-patter
Love is gone, So what can matter
No sweet lover man comes to call
When Sunny Gets Blue
