671 – Now You Say You’re Sorry

I saw these two graces yesterday morning, I saw them today, and today it was about time to eavesdrop on them.

The title is a line from the Song of the Day, the Arthur Hamilton standard “Cry Me A River“, originally written for Ella Fitzgerald. Boy, a song written for Ella, so her version must be pretty much the best, huhh?? Wrong. Nobody ever sang this song with more icy disdain than Barbra Streisand on her 1963 debut “The Barbra Streisand Album“. Hear it on YouTube. On the other hand, Ella’s version is, well, what can I say, it’s Ella. It’s only not the right emotion 🙂

Edit: Oh dear, I just found another version by Ella. Had to share this as well. WOW!
