Favourite songs

Lotte Lenya sings Seerauberjenny (Pirate Jenny) from Die Dreigroschenoper (The Threepenny Opera).  The clip is from G.W. Pabst’s 1931 film of the original stage play by Berthold Brecht and Kurt Weill.  No-one has ever sung it better than Lenya.  After all, Weill did write it for her.
