You're The Top {Music Monday 16}

I really love music from the 30s through the late 50s/early 60s. But it seems like with oldies music, I mostly gravitate towards male vocalists (Sinatra!). Among my favorite female voices of that era, though, Ella Fitzgerald is definitely at the top (no pun intended :). I think she just has the loveliest voice, and she can sing all sorts of styles.

The other day in Sam's Club I heard her version of Sleigh Ride coming from a CD kiosk. My thought pattern was: 1) Elf! I love that movie. 2) She can really sing. 3) It is too early for Christmas music, even for me. :) {I try to make it at least halfway through November!} So here's one of my favorite non-Christmas songs sang by Ella Fitzgerald. It's so much fun.

  1. Hey Kristin--I stopped over here after seeing your comment on my blog recently (thanks bunches for that!) and I was so excited when I saw the title of this post. I love You're the Top as a song in general...but I especially love it as sung in the movie What's Up Doc. It's a 1970s movie with Barbra Streisand and Ryan O' funny. You're The Top plays during the opening and closing credits.

    So I just had to say, FUN post. :)
