Giveaway and Review: Harry Connick Jr. CD - Your Songs (10/11) CLOSED

Saturday, September 26, 2009 Posted by Dina N

I must admit, until I discovered this CD, I had no idea the actor Harry Connick Jr. was also a musician. I've seen him most recently as the hunk in New in Town with Renee Zellweger. Some of his older movies are Hope Floats, My Dog Skip, and Mickey.

Thanks to the One2One Network, I got the opportunity to hear Your Songs, his new album where Harry performs classic songs by some of the greatest musicians of all time, with a full jazz big band and string orchestra. This is an amazing selection of songs that have long become my personal favorites. It's impossible to feel stressed or rushed once you start listening to this CD. Whether you are in the car, having some friends over, or are setting the mood for a romantic evening, this music is the perfect background. You can dance to these songs with your loved one, indulge in an hour of relaxation, or have a cup of coffee - or a glass of wine - and simply listen. Harry Connick Jr.'s voice and the timeless melodies can bring back sweet memories or help create new ones.

Take a look at the track list - isn't this collection just perfect?!

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)

Now Harry Connick Jr. is on my music radar, as well.. I was surspised to find out Harry played publicly for the first time at the age of 6! He has several multi-platinum and gold albums, 25 million albums sold worldwide, Grammy, Tony and Emmy Awards, and so much more.

Your Songs just came out September 22. You can find out more about Harry Connick Jr. at his website. Watch Harry talk about his new album on these shows:

    Just the Way You Look Tonight brings back some very good memories from high school. (I realize I just revealed how ancient I am!) My boyfriend used to sing it to me at dances. It was so romantic.
