Today's playlist consists of standards sung by Tony Bennett, Ray Charles, Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole, and more contemporary singers such as Diana Krall, Josh Groban, and Michael Bublè.* I am turning into my parents, clearly. (I also slipped in Adele's "Someone Like You." I'm not sure why.)
This is my Valium list. Why take benzos when you've got "Unforgettable" by Nat King (and Natalie) Cole, let alone Dianne Reeve's version of "One for My Baby"?
*And Lady GaGa. She and Bennett did a fun version of "The Lady Is a Tramp" on his Duets album. The girl can sing.
