Saturday Music: Favorites from Ol' Blue Eyes

I'm in a Sinatra mood, my dears--hence these songs. "Witchcraft", written by Cy Coleman and Carolyn Leigh, was originally recorded as a solo in 1957, but this version, a 1993 duet with the beautiful Anita Baker, is WONDERFUL.



"I’ve Got You Under My Skin" written by Cole Porter, comes from a 1956 album called SONGS FOR SWINGIN’ LOVERS. Don't talk to me about anybody else's version--not even Thomas Hampson's--or the duet with Bono from the same album as the duet with Anita Baker; this one is truly the standard, and all others fall short. Harrumph.



Oh, my. It don't get no better than this. Later, fellow music mavens.

  10. Great post. Trust you to come up with great mood music. Now I have a song of ambition and double dealing and that's just getting to the screen as well as what might be on it.
