Melancholy Mood


Bob Dylan’s latest single available to download from Fallen Angels is “Melancholy Mood,” his 50th single!  The lyrics for “Melancholy Mood” were written by Walter Schumann, a well-known film and television composer until his death in 1958.  Frank Sinatra recorded the song as the b-side of his first single (“From the Botton of My Heart”) in 1939 with Harry James and his orchestra.
