Tuesday was my Mom's birthday, so I went shopping for some CDs for her. I saw this while I was picking up Volume 2 of Rod Stewart's assault on the American Songbook and Diana Krall's The Look of Love. Yes, yes, Rod Stewart; my mom doesn't much like his voice, but she likes the songs. The Krall album is one of the older ones and thus was not polluted by Elvis Costello's vision of what she should be singing.
I could get to like this classical stuff; if I try hard enough while listening, La Mer really does conjure up the ocean.Posted by Linkmeister at September 5, 2004 01:02 PM
