In Leadbellys version of “Where Did You Sleep Last Night” I immediately notice the tone of Leadbellys voice. He expresses his lyrics in a deep yet yearning voice and at times it sounds like he is pleading to his girl. Also, at times Leadbelly improvises between lyrics in a some what ‘call and response’ manner. Throughout the song, Leadbellys expression stays the same- he has the same tone of voice and music is constant though out the song. But, when Leadbelly is singing about how he died he switches from the first person (I) to the third person (he) even though his tone sounds the same through out the song. Also, I noticed that when he sings the word ‘shiver’ he crescendos. The pitch stays relatively the same through out the piece, but at the end of lines “My girl, my girl, don’t lie to me Tell me where did you sleep last night” the pitch seems to drop down. The accompaniment was not overpowering during the song. The main focus was Leadbellys voice with the slow and simple sounding accompaniment in the background, which added some texture to the song. I feel myself still humming this melody, due to the fact that it is simple and the form of the song is ABAB so it is easy to remember and hum along to.
