This is with Ben Selvin on violin, Tommy Dorsey on trombone, Manny Klein on trumpet, Tony Parenti on clarinet and Rube Bloom on piano.  This is again one of those suicidal tunes that Annette characteristically sings.  However, she and the musicians just can't seem to get into the mood of the depressing lyrics and guess what, it comes off as an upbeat song!  I can actually see Annette smiling all through the song.  With such a great group of musicians how can she be sad.
 

Nobody Cares If I'm Blue

All  the old gang I once new
Now have left me, two by two
the old neighborhood don't look so good
I'm so lonely
by my only
each and everyone it seems
meets the ideal of their dreams
I've searched everywhere for my ideal
Now I am beginning to feel

Nobody knows
Nobody cares if I'm lonesome
Nobody sighs nobody cries if I'm blue
it seems that night after night
I sit alone and twiddle my thumbs
but still I keep right on hoping
keep the door open
but nobody comes
Ain't it a crime
kisses of mine are just wasted
since I am a tot
I singing what'll I do
Bo-hoo
Like a plaything on the shelf
Guess I'll have to play by myself
Nobody knows
Nobody cares if I'm blue
Nobody knows, nobody cares if I'm lonesome
Nobody sighs, nobody cries if I'm blue
I sit at home constantly
my company is just the four walls
but still I keep right on hoping
keep the door open
but nobody calls
ain't it a crime
loving like mine is just wasted
since I am a tot
I'm singing what'll I do
when it comes to hapiness
I must be a step child I guess
cause nobody knows, nobody cares if I'm blue

That's all!
