Harry Connick Jr’s “Your Songs” Is One Sweet Selection!REVIEWS | Nirasha Jaganath | October 3, 2009 at 8:28 pm
Had it not been my relationship with One2One Network I would be singing Dora tunes all day, and that would not be a good thing for anyone especially anyone subjected to my already bad singing (warning – knowing that I sing bad in no way makes me stop). I try not to listen to music in categories and listen to anything that stirs me. I am will to listen to (almost) anything except vulgarity, which is where I draw the line. Harry Connick Jr does not only have the looks (and by God he does have that in abundance) but the man can make you sway to his tunes too.
Knowing that he is a dad makes your heart melt more. Having something smooth to listen yet yet knowing older favorites that you actually know the words to is somewhat a rarity. Easy listening is what ensures getting played over and over again. The fact that I was already familiar with quite a few songs in his latest album “Your Songs”, a title which is indeed accurate. These are My Songs! My all time favorite has got to be Can’t help falling in love with you. This song has survived many rebirths and I have to admit I have yet to find one that I did not like. This CD is definitely worth a listen!
