It's still November ... as in "when the gales of November came early"

Fairly haunting and sort of incredible that Lake Superior is akin to the North Atlantic of the Great Lakes.

^^^ Not bad... good and powerful voice.   Nice and soft, as it supposed  to be sung.  

I still prefer the original, though.

Gotta be in the mood for this one ... sometimes yes and sometimes no.   I looked up the year of its origins - 1979.

I'm guessing you are referring to the one by Roberta Flack and which was featured in the movie "Play Misty for Me," sort of the "Fatal Attraction" of the previous decade.

Roberta Flack and this song are symbiotic even though, technically, it's not hers.  It originated in 1957.  And, after Roberta Flack, many other musical artists have taken a whack at it.

Yes.  Roberta Flack.

Her version was a staple on the (Montreal)  radio well into the late 1970s and very early 1980s.  I think I saw the movie Play Misty for Me, although I do not remember if I saw it or not...and Fatal Attraction?  With Michael Douglas?  I saw that movie thrice. Once on VHS when it came out. Another on DVD sometime in the late 1990s and last year I got my hands on it again. But I do not remember hearing the song in the movie...

But yeah...I LOVE this song and her version!

"Fatal Attraction" had Michael Douglas and Glenn Close.  I forgot who the other stars in it were.  "Play Misty for Me" had Clint Eastwood, Jessica Walter, and Donna Mills ... and was filmed in the Monterey, Carmel, Big Sur area along the Central California coast.  "Misty" was another great song, where its originator was outdone by country singer Ray Stevens in 1975.  It ripped up the charts in the U.S. and even in the U.K.

My dad HATED Bing Crosby.  

He told me he was a lowlife, drunken deadbeat dad, and wife beating husband.  

He never wanted to hear his songs in the house. But....I on the other hand, LOVE, LOVE his voice.  I do NOT condone his behaviour, but his voice is just...so XMAS-y...

Another voice that I love listening to during XMAS

100 pages of music discussions ... fine with me ...

Have always liked these ... over the years, I finally came to know the name of the artist and the songs.

 

I don't care how much you like "Stairway to Heaven" or "The Immigrant Song," the craftsmanship in these compositions is still way up there.

Vince Guaraldi, the jazz musician who composed them, died at a fairly young age and is interred in the same cemetery as Joe DiMaggio.  Colma, CA is the "cemetery suburb" used mostly by Catholics and Italians immediately south of San Francisco.
