My Funny Valentine is a perfect song for today. I've become addicted to listening to the old standard love songs--songs from the 30s, 40s, and early 50s. There is nothing like this music to evoke romance.
Many of the performers of my generation are also looking back at these songs. I guess aging rockers like Rod Stewart are seeking the romance they may have missed earlier in their careers. Stewart has come out with four CDs in his Great American Songbook series [CD MALE VOCALIST STE]. In the love song department, something like "The Nearness of You" is heads and tales above a song like "Hot Legs!"
Some of the younger generation are singing the standards and doing a damn fine job of it. Norah Jones' version of "The Nearness of You" [CD JAZZ JON] puts Rod Stewart's to shame. Michael Buble [CD MALE VOCALIST BUB] is another name to watch (although it's preferable to listen to him).
Enjoy your Valentine's Day!
