CLOSED: Harry Connick Jr. ~ Your Songs ~ Review and Giveaway







I was given the opportunity to review Harry Connick Jr.'s New CD Your Songs by the One2One Network. I have always loved Harry's music and have a few of his CD's in my collection. He has such a great voice and really knows how to croon. In this new CD Harry does something a little different.

Your Songs features Harry covering many type of songs including hits by Tony Bennett, Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Elton John, Frank Sinatra and more. Here is the play list for your review:

Your Songs ~ (original performer)

All The Way (Frank Sinatra)
Just The Way You Are (Billy Joel)
Can’t Help Falling In Love With You (Elvis Presley)
And I Love Her (The Beatles)
(They Long To Be) Close To You (The Carpenters)
Besame Mucho
The Way You Look Tonight
First Time Ever I Saw Your Face
(Roberta Flack)
Your Song (Elton John)
Some Enchanted Evening
And I Love You So
(Don McLean)
Who Can I Turn To? (Tony Bennett)
Smile (Charlie Chaplin)
Mona Lisa (Nat King Cole)

I really enjoyed this CD. Since I am already a Harry Connick Jr. fan, I knew I would. I like that he went in a different direction and covered other songs. My favorite tracks are All the Way and The Way You Look Tonight. I love these songs and while I think Sinatra does them better, Harry does a great job. I also liked his version of Your Song and Mona Lisa. I wasn't thrilled with Just the Way You Are or Besame Mucho but I still liked the CD as a whole. This baby is going into the car so I can listen to it while I drive. You can buy a copy of Your Songs on Amazon or any music retailer!

I want to thank the One2One Network for the opportunity to review this CD. I also want to thank them for providing an extra copy for one of my readers!!
