First Lady Of Song

Ella Fitzgerald- one of my favourite jazz singer with what i think is the best and most unique vocals of all times. Vocals are effortlessly flawless. And this is very very old and yet endearing. You've probably heard her music in some hotel lounge and not recognize it was her. Listen to 'You Can't Take That Away From Me", "Love Is Here To Stay", "Bewitched, Bothered, & Bewildered". My favourite is "The Very Thought Of You" and "These Foolish Things".

A cigarette that bares a lipstick’s traces
An airline ticket to romantic places
And still my heart has wings
These foolish things remind me of you.
A tinkling piano in the next apartment
Those stumblin’words that told you what my heart meant
A fairground’s painted swingsT
hese foolish things
Remind me of you.
