Here we are—some years after
You and me and funny laughter
Don’t be scared
It’s only dark
Soon you’ll hear a meadowlark

Don’t give up—just one more try
Rainbows soon will fill the sky
Say us in our upper limbos
Peeking through the blinds—on windows

Down below and far as wide is
Slick—is kissing old King Midas
Silly birds, you should know better
Tell each hero—go and get her

Lady love’s the one we’re after
Now and also—ever after
Gosh, oh golly—gee, she’s crying
Fortune teller—are you lying?

Do you see the noses growing
And wonder where—the truth is going?

    General CommentBill Frisell and Wayne Horwitz also contributed to this cool and slightly eerie intro to "When You Wish Upon a Star" by Ringo Starr on "Stay Awake", a collection of Disney tunes by contemporary artists compiled by Hal Wilner.

    General CommentMichael G. Breece has dedicated a website to “the one and only Ken Nordine”

    “This is a site (one in which that was, at the time, desperately lacking from the Internet) devoted to the brilliant spoken word master of recording, radio, television and sports casting. Many place Ken into the Beat category (which is appropriate), but his writings and readings can't be limited to such a category. His writings are more akin to Franz Kafka or Edgar Allan Poe than that of Jack Kerouac or Allen Ginsberg (seeing as Ken's writings are dark and tinged in paranoia). However, the jazz soundscapes backing his wonderful readings and his free-form jazz rants truly are Beat.”

    General Commentfrom Laurie Anderson's "green room"... Friday, March 17 Chicago Theater)
    Ken Nordine came to the show. One of the all time great Amrerican voices. I've always wanted to do an opera with him playing God. Don't know what my own role would be. Check out "Word Jazz" and all his classics - especially "The Stranger."
