SONGS ON SATURDAY - SITA SINGS THE BLUES


There are some actual songs this Saturday. And they're actually songs. If you haven't seen Sita Sings the Blues (it's obviously got plenty of songs in it), you're in for such a treat! It's one of the most brilliantly innovative films of modern times, with far-from-modern music, courtesy (mostly) of 20s singing legend Annette Hanshaw. Two of the below clips feature Ms Hanshaw, but all three are quite fantastic. Check them out, then check out the film (whether or not you already have), because there are so many more cool things in it which these excerpts can't even begin to hint at.
