I first heard “Tain’t No Use” way back, and still love it today.
Benny Goodman is one of my delights, and the fact that he’s singing in this makes it even better! I don’t care that he’s not a trained singer, it’s BENNY.
What follows is the CD album cover and the liner notes section (and author credit) where it states that Benny has “apologetically sung” the song!
“Tain’t no use
Cooked my goose
No, tain’t no use…”
You will experience the same intellectual heights with the rest of the lyrics here.
