Another song originally from the 1930s, but this is my favourite vocal version - a laid back interpretation from 1968.

1930s!  Really?   I thought we boomers had it all to ourselves.

Yep - the orignal version of this song was released in 1931 with vocals by Ozzie Nelson. The 1930s gave us so many great songs.

Another beautiful old song that was originally released in 1931. But I love the soft three part harmonies in this clip.

It's a Barnum & Bailey world. These words are in the tune "It wouldn't be make believe'. And NO, I didn't look it up.

I think my feeling are being hurt here. You're calling these songs forgotten. Ok, I guess it fits me. I am ready for Freddy (the friendly undertaker). With very few exceptions, (maybe the oo-blah-dee number), we DO these tunes at the club. About once a night we will stick in some old old stuff.
And that's because people will DANCE to it. Remember dancing. Back when people went out and interacted with one another?

SMO-JOE,

I'M AN ARCHITECT & A SOIL SCIENTIST. MY GRANDSON TELLS HIS TEACHERS THAT I DRAW PICTURES & PLAY IN THE DIRT FOR A LIVING.
WITH MY SOIL SCIENTIST HAT ON, I WOULD SAY YOUR "OLD AS DIRT" :)  I KNOW BECAUSE I'M THERE

Maybe I should have called it - 'The songs I'd forgotton that I remembered thread.' Don't take it too seriously folks. Just lean back and listen. And if you have a favourite old song on youtube then feel free to post it here too. 8)

A song that dates back to 1940 - (and featured in Henry's tabs thread a little while back) - but here in a recording that was made in 1963.

Jimmy, hope this works.  I'm lousy at cutting/pasting--hmm---been that way since kindergarten.  Barbra; singing "The Best Gift".   Ann and I played got the record the Christmas before our son was born in June--just seemed perfect.  Ann and I may be the only people who haven't forgotten--discovered?--this tune.

 Came thro' perfectly Dennis thank you. Her performance was excellent, and not the easiest type of song to put over, horses for courses eh     :)

Jimmy, you may have to mediate. 

L.J.'s an architect, soil scientist, expert witness--he can be a bit exacting and bothersome.  The man even has a pond--nope never been there to fish.  I'd just drive over, but L.J. isn't the concealed carry kinda guy.  Nope, liable to have the rifle or pistol in his hand...wife Elizabeth is probably more accurate..but don't just show up without an invite.  Probably doesn't have any fish in his dumb ole pond anyway.

I do remember catching lotsa fish--I just can't remember if I went fishing today.

Always good to hear from you, L.J.

Well Jimmy - opinions seem to be sharply divided on Ms Streisand as a singer. I happen to think she is remarkable and unique - and here she does something quite different with this old song. I listened to quite a few versions before choosing this one - to me it stood out by a mile 8)

Another famous old song that was first released in 1940 - I think this is the original.

An old song first released in 1925. Sinatra recorded a big band production version much later, but here it is performed as a piano duet.

Great tune, Streetlegal.   My wife doesn't understand; I'm certain I'd enjoy Frank singing; but sometimes listening to the lyrics gets in the way of the music.  I like it.

Yes - my apologies to your wife - but in this case I preferred the instrumental version. The Sinatra recording is also on youtube, but there is also this more interesting slower version that was recorded by Peggy Lee, for those who would like to hear the lyric of this old song.
