S(w)ingin’ Lady’s Blues
This Lady impressed me a lot.
On wednesdays I sat out on my balcony in Basel and watched her waiting for the tram.
She walked up and down the pavement talking to herself with this funny tiny, high ranged voice. As if she was imitating a child.
This already sounded and looked fascinating to me:
A women, not young at all, walking there, talking to herself not interested in the people standing around her, trying to ignore her with this smile on their faces, as if they were something better. She was wearing this sandcoloured coat and I could see some kind of flower printed skirt underneath. Her hair was always a bit oily but made.
I got even more impressed when she raised her voice for some singing lines. Now that voice had changed the range to the low and her volume was big and powerful.
She sang in german and obviously enjoyed the proleterian sound this language can have.
She made these little games. Switching fast from the tiny, childish talk to the low, powerful singing.
I was fascinated. This lady made me think and I wrote this song for her.
