Someday hell come along
The man I love
And hell be big and strong
The man I love
And when he comes my way
Ill do my best to make him stay
Hell look at me and smile
(c) The Man I Love Lyrics by Billie Holiday

THE DAY THE LADY DIED

By FRANK O'HARA

It is 12:20 in New York a Friday
three days after Bastille Day, yes
it is 1959, and I go get a shoeshine
because I will get off the 4:19 in East Hampton
at 7:15 and then go straight to dinner
and I don't know the people who will feed me
I walk up the muggy street beginning to sun
and have a hamburger and a malted and buy
an ugly NEW WORLD WRITING to see what the poets
in Ghana are doing these days
I go on to the bank
and Miss Stillwagon (first name Linda I once heard)
doesn't even look up my balance for once in her life
and in the GOLDEN GRIFFIN I get a little Verlaine
for Patsy with drawings by Bonnard although I do
think of Hesiod, trans. Richmond Lattimore or
Brendan Behan's new play or Le Balcon or Les Nègres
of Genet, but I don't, I stick with Verlaine
after practically going to sleep with quandariness
and for Mike I just stroll into the PARK LANE
Liquor Store and ask for a bottle of Strega, and
then I go back where I came from to 6th Avenue
and the tobacconist in the Ziegfeld Theatere and
casually ask for a carton of Gauloises and a carton
of Picayunes, and a NEW YORK POST with her face on it
and I am sweating a lot by now and thinking of
leaning on the john door in the 5 SPOT
while she whispered a song along the keyboard
to Mal Waldron and everyone and I stopped breathing.

Written in 1964 and reprinted from "Lunch Poems," with the permission of City Lights Books.

I'm bringing this old thread up to the front because a) I am obsessed with Billie Holiday! I wake up singing "the difficult...I'll do right now. The impossible will take a little while!" and dance to "Them There Eyes" all day, fall asleep with "Gloomy Sunday" and dream of Billie Holiday. I'm a hopeless case, and I need support in my obsession!
b) Billie Holiday deserves a better thread than this.

Does anyone know who wrote these songs? because the lyrics combined with her outstanding vocal expression are absolute genius!

And are there other artists like her?

The fact that the song supposedly has such power just solidifies my point... Billie Holiday can sing...the power of emotions just stab at you from the sound of her voice....its crazy!
