*REVIEW* Harry Connick, Jr. ~ Your Song

About a week ago, I was given the opportunity by One2One Network to participate in a review of Harry Connick, Jr’s new CD Your Songs. I actually got to enjoy it a day before it was available for purchase…hehe lucky me! Your Songs wasn’t released to the public until today!

Harry Connick, Jr. began performing at a very young age. He has since then grown into an amazing artist not just vocally, but also in theater and in movies. He has starred in 18 movies, 2 Broadway productions, and has released 26 albums.

Even though Harry Connick, Jr.’s music style isn’t what I normally listen to, I absolutely love his voice and have discovered that I really do enjoy his music. In the past it’s always reminded me of Christmas…this CD is different. Listening to this CD makes me want to put on a fancy dress, grab a nice glass of wine, and make out with my husband. I don’t know what it is, but prepare yourself. I mean, just take a glance at some of the songs on Your Songs. The track list consists of signature songs from classic artists and performers such as, Elvis Presley, Nat King Cole, Tony Bennett, Frank Sinatra, and Billy Joel along with others.

Below is a list of songs featured on Your Songs and who originally performed each song.
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 (Don McLean)
Who Can I Turn To? (Tony Bennett)
Smile (Charlie Chaplin)
Mona Lisa (Nat King Cole)

I really can’t choose which song was my favorite…there are several that I really like, but honestly the whole CD is very good. His voice is soothing and sexy, and the arrangements of each song are flawless…this would be a perfect compliment to a romantic candlelit dinner.
