Accordion Noir Radio playlist 2008-04-25: Home Sweet Home

April 23, 2018


It’s the start of a new week and with it, another selection from the Accordion Noir Classic archives from ten years back.  (“Selection” doesn’t really do it justice when what we mean is really “here’s the show we aired closest to 10 years ago on this date.”  We don’t get to choose!)  It was episode number 74 of our weekly broadcast, and we’d just come through a tour de force Spring Member Drive… this let us relax a little bit with our customary mix of many different styles from many different locales.  At its original online home it racked up some 3391 recorded “listens” … hopefully it will gather a few more at its new, forever online home over here.  To help point the way, here’s its playlist:

I Don’t Want To Set the World On Fire (the Ink Spots)

C A7 D- A7 D-
I don’t want to set the world on fire
I just want to start
A flame in your heart
In my heart I have but one desire
And that one is you
No other will do C (bb b c)
I’ve lost all ambition for worldly acclaim
I just want to be the one you love
And with your admission that you feel the same
D- G7
I’ll have reached the goal I’m dreaming of
C – I don’t want to set the world A7 on D- fire A7 D-
G I just want to start
A flame in your C heart (bb b c)
