Timeless Love Songs (1929-1957) Featuring Billie Holiday & Al Bowlly

Timeless Love Songs (1929-1957) Featuring Billie Holiday & Al Bowlly

Playing tracks by

The Four Lads, Orlando & His Gleneagles Hotel Orchestra, Anita O'Day, Al Bowly with Ray Noble, Irving Aaronson & His Commanders and more.

Alternate title: Love Me or Leave Me (only song to be used more than once in the mix). Also featured here are the Dorsey Brothers and Benny Goodman. This of course fits the upcoming mood with Valentine's Day just around the corner. I was thinking of using some songs after 1957, but I decided to keep the feel of music from the '30s and '40s (3 out of 4 of the songs from the '50s used here are actually covers of songs from that earlier period). The inspiration for this mix was actually the last song that was stuck in my head recently; I even whistled it and sang it but couldn't figure out the name of it till I asked my 78 year old friend Quentin for help.

Thanks Brenda. The general consensus is that this is one of my best mixes, so I'm glad you found it! :)

Talk about setting a mood, very nicely done RetroJoe. It’s funny to hear the way the artists delivery was compared to today’s music and how the lyrics set up an image and convey that message, just amazingly well-written. Thanks for putting together an elegance mix.
