Songs for Insomniacs 58, Jackie Gleason, “What’s New?”

Jackie Gleason once remarked “The only thing better than one of my songs is one of my songs with a glass of scotch.”

So pour yourself a double Balvenie (or Monkey Shoulder if you’re on a fixed income like me) and enjoy Billy May’s dark orchestration of the classic “What’s New.” 2021 will seem like a far-away galaxy.

If the genius of this track doesn’t click for you, try another double.
