"Your Songs" Are Definitely MY SONGS
I don’t know about you, but sometimes I’m just in the mood for something mellow and refined….something groovy and easy on the eyes….
I’m enjoying the latest CD release from Harry Connick, Jr. “Your Songs”, and he transports me to another place and time with many of these wonderful American standards! I enjoy an “me time” to wind down from a hectic day at the office combined with kids, housework, and civic activities – and HCJ’s take on the great ones like “Just the Way You Are”, “Besame Mucho”, and “The Way You Look Tonight” really helps me chill-lax and unwind….
The CD is filled with fun ditties deftly performed by Harry in his iconic smoothness. He’s soooo dreamy….
