When I saw casablancalover post an Association link, I thought "I'll have to go to YouTube and find my favorite and post it too". But...you beat me to it...that's my favorite by them too!

 

Seems like 1920's or 1960's, we have much the same musical tastes!

casasblancalover, I meant to post a song here yesterday for your birthday. ( Oh well, at least you got the other one I found for you.)

 

So, this is the day after your birthday. I always play this particular song myself, after my birthday, so I thought you might like it if I posted it for you. I hope you don't mind the somewhat ironic lyrics - Paul Simon has his fans and his detractors, but I've never heard anyone accuse him of writing mindless lyrics. He's a very smart guy, and his lyrics reflect that. Anyway, I hope you had a good time.

I do like Paul Simon, but I hadn't heard that one.

 

Who's the performer?

 

Well, I read the other day that the music that really reaches us will be the music from an era we experience love. So something from my past:

I have also read that speakers behind you will cause the music to reach you deeper emotionally. That explains why I miss my Blue Demon so much; that car had 4 speaker sound!

 

I am putting a sound bar behind the couch.

My Valentine Day Song would be Too Marvelous for Words. This song was popular in movies of the 30s and 40s. It is the song used in Dark Passage every time Bogie and Bacall get that look in their eyes.

 

Here is a link of Frank singing it.

Jerome Kern's sweet haunting melody. I don't know what it is about The Way You Look Tonight, but it always brings a lump to my throat, especially if it's what I consider to be the "original" version from *Swingtime*. Unfortunately - and surprisingly - I was not able to find the clip from the actual movie, but at least I found the song as sung by Fred himself. There is something so touching and somehow innocent about this song.

 

 

 

 

ps- All the other contributions here today were great . The other versions of The Way You Look Tonight, You've Got a Friend, You're Just Too Marvelous ( *Dark Passage*, yay ! ) Til There Was You , another exquisitely pretty melody whether it's from *The Music Man* or "With the Beatles" ...thanks, people.

You know, it can't be a day of love without Elvis.

 

It is my favorite, but I will include a bonus tune.

I love Roy too, but I am taking a little detour this morning. New Orleans.

I know I lean heavily into Zydeco, but this group really swings!
