Harry Connick Jr. "Your Songs" review

I was given the opportunity to review the new Harry Connick, Jr. cd "Your Songs", courtesy of the One2OneNetwork and Sony Music. Now, I have never really been a fan of him before. Whenever I would see him on t.v., I would flip the station because I thought his music was boring. I never really took the time to actually listen to it. But when I was approached to do the review, I thought I would give it a try with an open mind this time. And to be honest, I really liked it. Maybe it's because I'm older and more "mature" (ha!). His new cd is comprised of other artists songs, like "Just the Way You Look Tonight" (my favorite!) and "Just the Way You Are" that his fans have requested.

Album Tracklisting (Originally performed by):

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)

Here are a couple fun links:

Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked the cd. It's upbeat, yet soothing...if that makes any sense. If you're interested in getting it, I know Amazon is selling it for $9.99 right now and they will also give you $1 worth of MP3 downloads and $2 off Michael Buble's newest cd "Crazy Love". They also have the track listings with samples of the songs for you to listen to if you're interested.

Thanks for the review!

LOL I just saw that you play WoW - I played it for 3 months and stopped so I wouldn't get addicted. Loved it when I played it, though! I work at sticviews.com, and we have a sticker of a night elf in our bathroom, haha.

Good luck on the I Heart Faces Sticviews contest - thanks for entering :)
