Harry Connick Jr:: Your Songs

I have to admit, I've been a Harry Connick Jr. fan for many many years. One of the first concerts I went to was a Harry show and I don't think I could ever forget it. Can I also admit that Harry was also one of my very first celebrity crushes? When I was probably no more than 12, my mom, my sister and her mom went and saw the ever-so-handsome Harry at West Point and he was nothing short of an amazing performer, and a dreamboat at that. At one point, a whole bunch of people went down toward the stage and then the military police told us all to go back to our seats, Harry was so classy, but he told the mp that his fans were allowed to come down to the stage, and that the mp are NOT to tell his fans what to do again for the rest of the show!!

Could he possibly be any more handsome??!!
When I was offered the chance to review Harry's new CD "Your Songs" by One2One Network, I was stoked! Even years and years later, Harry remains one of my favorite singers, and yes, still a big crush of mine.

Hearing him sing some songs that have been originally done by some amazing artists is such a treat. Though the songs on the album, like "Your Song," "Just The Way You Are," and others are so associated with the original artists, Harry sings them so well and makes them his own, all while keeping it classy and giving respect to the original singers. My favorite on "Your Songs" has to be "And I Love Her," originally sung by The Beatles, but my Harry does it perfect!

Tracks on "Your Songs":::
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 definitely have a hard time picking - "Smile," "The Way You Look Tonight" - classic. "Some Enchanted Evening," however, just might be the one to send shivers up my spine - recently saw the Broadway revival of "South Pacific" and it is a song that just lingers with you.

I adore Harry Connick Jr. I would really love the song, Just The Way You Are. This is such a beautiful song and one of my favorites. Thanks so much.

I'd like to hear the "Besame Mucho (Kiss Me Much)" song from Harry Connick Jr newly released CD - Your Songs.

I first saw him perform in 1990 with his BIG Band he toured around with back then.
