Boardwalk Empire Season Three Episode Three Ending Song

-Nobody Knows You When You’re Down and Out-

Originally written by Jimmy Cox in 1923.

Interpreted by Neko Case

Lyrics:

Once I lived the life of a millionaire,
Spent all my money, just did not care,
Took all my friends out for a mighty good time,
Bought bootleg whisky, champagne and wine.
Then I began to fall so low;
Lost all my good friends, had nowhere to go.
If I get my hands on a dollar again,
I’m gonna hang on to it till that eagle grins, ‘cause

(Refrain:)
Nobody knows you when you’re down and out;
In your pocket, not one penny;
And as for friends, you don’t have any.
Then when you get back on your feet again
Everybody wants to be your long-lost friend
It’s mighty strange, without any doubt
Nobody knows you when you’re down and out.
When you finally get back upon your feet again,
Everybody wants to be your long-lost friend
Said it’s mighty strange, without any doubt
Nobody knows you when you’re down and out.
It’s mighty strange, without any doubt,
Nobody knows you when you’re down, you’re down and out.

Was able to pinpoint that it was Neko Case about 3 seconds into the closing credits of last night’s episode & it’s been stuck in my head since.

Twin Shadow - “Five Seconds”

One of the BEST videos I’ve seen in a long time. Like “Purple Rain” meets “The Warriors”…

Could it be? Is it possibly possible that they didn’t ruin ‘On the Road’? I guess we’ll have to wait & see, but it actually looks promising.

Sorry ARBY’s made you judge the town.

Pauls Valley is a fine little town, I live here. Too bad you didn’t have a full local’s perspective…some of the BEST Bar-B-Que in the state is RIGHT NEXT DOOR TO ARBY’s.

The ONLY Toy and Action Figure Museum in the world, is right here in downtown Pauls Valley. We are also the home of FIELD’s PECAN PIES…sorry you didn’t have a slice while you were here…

I went into the Arby’s dining room and the manager was being a real harridan! I can understand why that could affect your dining experience, sory again, it affected your attitude toward the town.

— Message from a concerned Paul’s Valley, OK, resident, regarding a 6 year old Yelp review of mine.

Just watched GBII & now I’m weirdly nostalgic for the NYC of my childhood when ghost invasions were far more frequent.

The Beach Boys - “Feel Flows”

Really, truly, the most beautiful & perfect Beach Boys song in the history of Beach Boys songs. Goosebumps start to finish. I listened to it probably 30 times yesterday & still it wasn’t enough.

Mountain - “Mississippi Queen”

Track 1 on my forthcoming Cowbell Classics comp. Perfect beer commercial music. But in a good way.
