My soundtrack today has been the song Nature Boy. Not sure why, except I love the last lines.
So I watched a Nat King Cole clip on YouTube and it struck as way too eerie, though the man had one seriously gorgeous voice. Then I played the version from Moulin Rouge, and it sounded off key, and I don't have the slightest sense of pitch.
But I finally I landed on this performance, which captured exactly the mood that was humming around in my head today. Good lord, how is it I've never heard Lizz Wright before? What a talent. She's accompanied by a gentleman on the bongos, and watching them perform together felt like seeing a candle flame burst into a bonfire.
We're talking H-O-T.
I've just got to get out more.
Hope you enjoy!
