It's Oh So Quiet" is a song by American singer Betty Hutton, released in 1951 as the B-side to the single "Murder, He Says". It is a cover of the German song "Und jetzt ist es still", performed by Horst Winter in 1948, with music written by Austrian composer Hans Lang and German lyrics by Erich Meder. The English lyrics were written by Bert Reisfeld. A French title, "Tout est tranquille", was performed in 1949 by Ginette Garcin and the Jacques Hélian Orchestra.

In a way it was against my principles to do an old cover version because I'm so anti-retro. But it has this story, this narrative: there's a beginning and something happens in the middle and the ending is different. So many pop songs, especially with English lyrics, are just 900 different ways of saying 'she left me!' Which I actually love because it's pop, just one idea, very simple, but it doesn't mean it's cheap. You've Been Flirting Again.

Til it's over and then It's nice and quiet But soon again Starts another big riot. You blow a fuse Zing boom The devil cuts loose Zing boom So what's the use Wow bam Of falling in love. The sky caves in The devil cuts loose You blow blow blow blow blow your fuse When you've fallen in love. It's Oh So Quiet" lyrics provided for educational purposes and personal use only.

It's, oh, so quiet It's oh, so still You're all alone And so peaceful until. You ring the bell Bim bam You shout and you yell Hi ho ho You broke the spell. Gee, this is swell, you almost have a fit This guy is "gorge" and I got hit There's no mistake, this is it. 'Til it's over and then It's nice and quiet Sssh, sssh But soon again Sssh, sssh Starts another big riot

It's Oh So Quiet ‎(Box, Single, Promo + VHS + CD). Mother Records. Maybe the best version of Hyperballad with the album version and its sub-bass at the begining. One excellent song doesn't make this release a good one, above all when you already have that song on Telegram, along with Cover Me (Dillija mix), or Army of Me (Graham Massey from 808 State).
