“Move your ass!”

Mansfield_army The ordering voice was David Foster’s. The recipient’s was composer Arthur Hamilton’s, who was told to get over to Capitol.  He followed orders and when he arrived at the main recording studio, he found it filled with musicians and Michael Double at the mike, Foster producing the recording of– “Cry Me A River.” He had written it in 1955 and Julie London was the first–of 900–to re-record it, Hamilton happily reports. Frank Sinatra was but one of the major singers who do it. Over the years it has been bread and butter–“and forks, knives, spoons,” added Hamilton whose repertoire includes the tune, “The Girl Can’t Help It” from the Jayne Mansfield (left) starrer of the same name–which also starred Julie London–who Hamilton escorted to their high school prom! Hamilton, one of the three governors of the music branch of the Acadmey, says at the April 29 Governors’ meeting the board will take up (again) the issue to increasing Academy membership. Stay tuned to the tuners request…

Add this music note: Alam and Marilyn Bergman have again teamed with Marvin Hamlisch to write a movie tune. This one, “Trust Me,” will close “The Informant” starring Matt Damon. Steve Tyrell sings it over the film’s finale and those who’ve heard -and seen it–say it is priceless!. Damon, whose character  steals millions in the film, has adopted a new look–plus 30 pounds and mustache–and that ain’t all.
