Pass me by
My memory's a bit fuddled sometimes. I thought I remembered hearing Peggy Lee's Pass Me By on the car radio in California, but the song came after we left. The notion of telling the world to "pass me by" and leave me alone is an attractive one, but somehow the world isn't generally inclined to do that. I like the first version better than Sinatra's or Lee's--the percussion is more realistic. "The whole darned world" gets a vote.
