Name That Tune!

Posted by Joni in General

I have a Nokia N800 Internet Tablet, which I bought last September to replace my Nokia 770 that ended up drowning in my handbag (don’t ask!). Since I got my Treo 700P, and loaded it to the gills with e-books, I haven’t used my Nokia too much and kind of forgot about it. While cleaning the house this weekend, I found it on a bookshelf. For some reason, I started searching YouTube for info on the new OS2008 (which I’d heard had problems). Anyway, I found this video. And here’s my question. Does anyone know the name of the song being sung at the beginning of the video clip? All the lyrics I can make out are … he’s gonna leave me … all by myself. Thanks and hugs and kisses and undying devotion (and anything else you wanna work out with me) to anyone who can answer this. I’ve Googled and Napstered and just can’t locate anything.

Thanks for posting that other great video! And thanks for providing the answer, Moby, In This World. :-)

    Rats…someone beat me to the punch. It’s “Don’t Leave Me All By Myself.” It’s (obviously) a blues song. It was once done by Guitar Slim and Jelly Belly. You can buy it at Amazon for 99 cents.

    The lyrics are something like this:

    Lordy don’t leave me
    All by myself
    Good time’s the devil
    I’m a force of heaven
    Lordy don’t leave me
    All by myself
    So many time’s I’m down
    Down down
    With the ground
    Lordy don’t leave me
    All by myself
    Whoa, in this world
    Lordy don’t leave me
    All by myself

    And there you have it.

    … as re-popularised by Moby, in his track called “In This World”, which is actually what you’re hearing there, and what Kalon linked to.


    Recycle, rehash, rinse, repeat :)
