Harry Connick Jr. is so dreamy! (Yes, I know that sounds old. Don't care! lol)
I have absolutely loved him in television and movies; but I had NO idea he's such a talented singer too!
When given the opportunity to try Connick Jr.'s new album Your Songs, I'll admit I was a bit hesitant. But the oh-so-hot cover convinced me to give it a shot.
Your Songs really takes youback to the big band era with Connick Jr. performing classic songs by some of the greatest musicians of all times; including:
- All The Way (Frank Sinatra)
- Just The Way You Are (Billy Joel)
- Can’t Help Falling In Love With You (Elvis Presley)
- And I Love Her (The Beatles)
- (They Long To Be) Close To You (The Carpenters)
- Besame Mucho
- The Way You Look Tonight
- First Time Ever I Saw Your Face (Roberta Flack)
- Your Song (Elton John)
- Some Enchanted Evening
- And I Love You So (Don McLean)
- Who Can I Turn To? (Tony Bennett)
- Smile (Charlie Chaplin)
- Mona Lisa (Nat King Cole)
It was definitely a trip down a memory lane created even before my time, but a beautiful era nonetheless.
While I really enjoyed the album, if forced to be truthful I have to admit that I still prefer seeing Harry on the screen versus just hearing him on an album.
Although he has a beautiful voice to match those blessed looks, I'm just not sure it would be as enticing if the music wasn't from musicians who have already instilled a love of their songs; enticing you to listen to and love them irregardless of who is performing.
But why not give it a try for yourself?
