Monday music: "Sunshine of Your Love," by — you won't believe this....

From 1969, Montreux.



And now, for perhaps a more representative Ella Fitzgerald tour de force....

That's why we named our daughter "Ella" (short for Eliana - my God has answered).

I love songs reworked from their original genre. Scott Hill (of Fide-o gone by) and I get together often to do that. You should hear our "Sweet Child O' Mine".

Thanks. Ella made almost anything sound good.

I've heard people pray and sing in tongues that sounded a lot like that second video.

The gift of scat-singing.

It's analogous!

Dan,

I need you guys to pray for my artistic taste. I found the first video very awkward. I can't figure out if it was only the singing, that she seemed out of breath and about to drop, or if it was the motionless, creepy seeming audience watching her. Any way, it was uncomfortable. Alas! I number myself among those who don't get it.

HSAT, I'm glad you posted this. It gave me a chance for introspection.
