Review: Harry Connick, Jr Sings Your Songs

I'm old enough to remember going to see the movie "When Harry Met Sally" in the theatre and hearing "It Had to Be You" and thinking "Wow, that guy sounds great. I wonder who that is." Since then I've followed and enjoyed Connick's music since - of course it doesn't hurt that he has the face of a male model! - and admired the work he's done in his native New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina so when One2One Network gave me the opportunity to review his new album Your Songs I jumped at the chance.
This album includes classic songs that you'll know from other places and by other artists. Like:
  • All The Way
  • Just the Way You Are
  • Can't Help Falling in Love with You
  • And I love Her
  • Close to You
  • Besame Mucho
  • The Way You Look Tonight
  • First ime Ever I saw Your Face
  • Your Song
  • Some Enchanted Evening
  • And I love You So
  • Who Can I Turn To
  • Smile
  • Mona Lisa

While I appreciated the music and enjoyed Connick's interpretation of these songs I can't say that I thought these were the best versions of these songs I've ever heard or his best work. Sometimes I just think his voice wasn't the best match for the song. However, I think this is a good album and good background music and if you are a die hard Harry Connick, Jr. fan then you'll want to get this album for sure.
