    I thought the original title of the piece was "Moritat of Mack the Knife" . . . but various artists changed it slightly.

    @raggleman: They are exactly the same piece. "Moritat" is simply a word taken from the original German title of Kurt Weil's song, meaning a ballad about death/murder.

    I'm fully aware this is Mack The Knife.....but I'm being told it's Moritat. Is that a different name for the same track or a completely different piece of music?
