In the Shadows #11: Never on Sunday

April 8, 2016 at 12:12 pm Leave a comment

This one goes back a ways to 1960. It is the title song from the movie of the same name. As far as I know, the Ventures never recorded this, but I think my arrangement shows how it might have sounded.

The film tells the story of Ilya, a self-employed, free-spirited prostitute who lives in the port of Piraeus in Greece, and Homer, an American tourist. He is a classical scholar enamored of all things Greek. Homer feels Ilya’s life style typifies the degradation of Greek classical culture and attempts to steer her onto the path of morality, while at the same time Ilya loosens the uptight Homer up. It constitutes a variation of the Pygmalion plus “hooker with a heart of gold” story.
