Town Without Pity (song)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"Town Without Pity" is a song written by composer Dimitri Tiomkin and lyricist Ned Washington. The track, produced by Aaron Schroeder[1], was originally recorded by Gene Pitney for the 1961 film of the same title. In the US, the Gene Pitney recording went to #13 on the Hot 100.[2]

This tragic song, in a minor key of B Minor, first ends the chorus in D Major, before going up a key to the refrain in the C Minor, where the Coda ends the song in the same minor key.


In 1962, the song received a Golden Globe Award for Best Song and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Song (losing to "Moon River" from Breakfast at Tiffany's).

Other versions

Pitney also recorded versions in German (lyrics by Frank Zieboltz[3]), entitled "Bleibe bei mir" ("Stay With Me") and Italian, entitled "Città Spietata". Many artists and bands have recorded cover versions over the years since its release, including:
