Re: Bing Recordings Listening To Now

OK, I can't stand it anymore, you're now forcing me to list the last several songs I've heard from my computer's random play of songs, warning, I have a wide variety of artists and kinds of music that plays, not just Bing  (though if I put Bing in as a search for in the playlist it would only play Bing), get set:
Ballad of Palladin - Johnny Western
If There’s Anybody Here Bing w/Donald O’Connor
Never Trust A Woman – Tex Williams
It Takes A Heap of Living –Walter Brennan
Where The Blue of  The Night Meets Blue of the Day (1930’s version, but not Hawaiian version (thank goodness)
Jazz Legato – Leroy Anderson
Scarlet Ribbons – Jo Stafford
The Saint (TV show) Theme - Edwin Astley
Each time I have read these lists of "random" played songs I tell myself I'm going to list my most recent songs played too, but because I just don't listen to Bing only I have refrained, but couldn't take it anymore.

Hey Lee,

Can you not stand it or are you inspired? LOL. I love your list. I am especially a fan of Leroy Anderson and Jo Stafford is my favorite female singer. 

With about 3000 CDs and a ton of LPs and cassettes, Bing is my favorite singer but I listen to many other artists as well. At work now I just listen to Bing because he seems to relax me the most when I am stressed out. In the car or at home I listen to a favorite of jazz, big band, and vocals. When the kids are in the car, they like the younger fellas like The Beatles and Billy Joel so I let them listen to that.

Lee, maybe you can do a list weekly as well!

Re: Bing Recordings Listening To Now

TGIF! Here are my five I listened to this AM:

1. Between 18 and 19th On Chestnut Street  (with Connee Boswell)
2. The Lady Is A Tramp (radio recording)
3. Lady Of Spain (radio recording - this is the 1st recording I ever heard by Bing)
4. I'd Love To Live In Loveland
5. My Kinda Love (excellent 1929 version)

This weekend I will give my Bing listening a break. I am currently listening to some of Buddy Clark's radio recordings from his Contented Carnation radio show. Excellent vocals on them!

Re: Bing Recordings Listening To Now

Sometimes I like to listen to just Bing too, that's when I put Bing in on my search place on Media Player and then it will only play Bing songs, I generally do this on Saturdays.  Oh, there is one song that comes up sometimes and plays that is not a Bing recording, it's the Dean Martin song, "If I Could Sing Like Bing" other than that it's all Bing.  

I have always liked the Buddy Clark and Doris Day duets, I was surprised a year to 2 ago when I saw a picture of Buddy Clark, he looked a lot older than I had pictured him in my mind.

Jo Stafford is one of my favorite singers and one of the very best girl singers.  I especially love the way she holds a note so long and sings with such ease.  I think holding a note the way she does shows what a great singer she is, as opposed to modern day female singers who have that awful warbling yodel sound every time they open their mouth, holding a note today is never done.  I think it was Whitney Houston's example who ruined modern female singers forever.

I agree. Buddy Clark never was a good looking guy, and he was a ghost singer in Hollywood for awhile. By all accounts he was a great guy. What I like about Jo Stafford is she retired before she was past her prime. She stopped singing when her voice changed. So many great songbirds like Peggy Lee, Ella Fitzgerald, and Rosemary Clooney kept on singing way past when they should have. So my memory of Jo is that her voice was always perfect since she retired in 1970.

Re: Bing Recordings Listening To Now

One Bing recording which I heard today (for the first time)was a duet with Connie Haynes on 'Blue Hawaii'. I presume it was from a radio program. I heard it on the weekly BBC program hosted by Howard Leader which I listen to at my leisure as it's archived. As for Jo Stafford, she's one of my favourites and I was delighted to have six of her recordings on a 3-CD set titled THE GREAT DANCE BAND SINGERS; a beaut Christmas present. Issued by Reader's Digest (Australia) it seems that they were recorded in 1967, 1969 and 1970.

Regarding the Jo Stafford, those were among Jo's last recordings. She sang a great version of Whispering Hope with her daughter in 1978, and she did a single as Darlene Edwards in the early 80s but that is it. Like Bing, Jo's voice was audio gold.

I never heard Bing and Connie Haines sing Blue Hawaii. I'll have to check that out. I remember when Connie Haines died in 2008, her mother was still alive. Her mother died two years later at the age of 108 I believe!

Right now in the car, I have been listening to more jazz - Mildred Bailey, Billie Holiday, Louis Armstring. I go through phases!

Re: Bing Recordings Listening To Now

Dug out my copy of the 5 LP "Bing" biography for the birthday weekend. Playing sides 6-10 this afternoon. I'm surprised that it is mostly in VG+ to NM- shape.

Re: Bing Recordings Listening To Now

A mate of mine and his wife are celebrating their Wedding Anniversary on Monday (already there) in Australia.
So I sent them YouTube of Bing’s Anniversary Waltz and Anniversary Song plus Al Jolson Anniversary Song.
Come birthday time I send them Bing’s Happy Birthday/Auld Lang Syne or just Happy Birthday.
People seem to enjoy receiving them and it keeps Bing in their minds

Re: Bing Recordings Listening To Now

Dear David,
You are certainly not an annoyance. https://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png
Even though I do not react much to your listings of songs you are listening to, I always read them. They're interesting and often lead me to listening to some of the songs myself.
