Vonage Helps To Revive The Rocketeens "Woo Hoo" Song

Vonage In Print News

What is in The Great American Songbook?

May 6, 2005

By Jan Souther

Every so often, one of the major artists will issue an album titled (in this case), "Ella Fitzgerald sings the Great American Songbook." Those of us who have been around a while don't need to know what's in it. We don't even need to know what the great American songbook is. It's the several hundred songs that are still around, from the moment they made their debut in, most likely, a Broadway show or a Hollywood movie. Think of, "In the Still of the Night," as one example. "I'm Beginning To See The Light," as another.

You get the idea. The great songs that never lose their brilliance, that are never far from our ears. These are the songs we write about here when we do a column about commercials and the music that's used to underscore them: "Blue Skies," "As Times Goes By," "It Had To Be You," and "The Nearness of You."

But, now that I think of it, Vonage is using one of the great favorites of my later teen years, "Woo Hoo," originally performed by a Swedish band, the Rocketeens.

The version you hear now is, I think, from the "Kill Bill" film and not the original recording.

As popular as it was, at least with me, it never stuck around. So not all commercial music is that great.

When Tony Bennett opens his mouth, on the other hand, you will hear a great song come out; Ella Fitzgerald, as mentioned earlier, would do the same. Sinatra never made a bad recording, nor did Nat Cole.

Not all songs and not all artists made it. Perry Como made dozens of hit records, most of which (by his own admission) were far from challenging and he admits he could have done far better. He's not in that league.

Rosemary Clooney, in her earlier days, was led into some perfectly horrid recording sessions by Mitch Miller; later on, she broke away, developed a classic singing style and came into her own as a great interpreter of the classic American song.

Those songs are valuable for several reasons.

For one thing, they are good music; very good music. Great melodies with equally great words. They speak to us and our lives, because we've been there. They reflect our experience.

For another, and because of the first, they have hung around for decades. They just don't go away like some pop tunes that are nice to hear a few times ("Purple People Eater" - remember that one?) and best forgotten.

Also, they can be interpreted in various ways. You want them bluesy?

How about a bit on the romantic side? Upbeat and perky? No problem; tell your arranger what you'd like and the song can probably be performed that way and still be good.

Don't forget: they're good as vocals and they're good as instrumentals.
