Dizzies Music Supplement — February edition
Dizzyhead musical challenge from Levi:
Listening just now to the Magnetic Fields's "I Think I Need a New Heart," I realized that it's one of that small class of songs that includes a reference to a (possibly different?) song by that same name that's playing during the song:
As you put down your keys
and say, "Don't call me, please,"
While the radio plays "I Think I Need a New Heart."
The others I know of are "Bonaparte's Retreat"
and "Tennessee Waltz"
So I held her in my arms
And told her of her many charms;
Kissed her while the guitars played
I was waltzing with my darling—both written by Pee Wee King and Redd Stewart. Are there others that you know of?
To "The Tennessee Waltz"
When an old friend I happened to see.
I introduced him to my darling
And while they were dancing
My friend stole my sweetheart from me.
