Saturday tunes: "Un-photographable"

Rickie's magnificent (but porn-star moustachioed Mikey's pretty cool too--I'd take his job in a minute).

I won't say for certain that Conrad Lorenz, who wrote the lyrics for "My Funny Valentine," was as self-loathing as these lyrics suggest when they're taken literally, but he was certainly self-destructive; only one small indicator was his death from liver failure at 48. All of which makes this song poignant, but also a lot darker than it's sometimes sold.

Still, the guy could set a rhyme.
