Welcome to Set 24.  Wow.  I've been at this for 6 months now.

YAY me!

I think an excellent way to celebrate is by sharing some of my favorites from one of my favorites.

Thanks to all who continue to participate.  

Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones

And you get a double bonus because didn't have my two absolute favorite Dusty vocal performances.

"But if you stay I'll make you a night
Like no night has been or will be again
I'll sail on your smile
I'll ride on your touch
I'll talk to your eyes
That I love so much"

What a lyric.  The song If You Go Away is based upon the song Ne Me Quitte Pas written by Jacques Brel in 1959.  Rod McKuen composed the English lyric.  It is a classic and a standard and has been covered by many of the world's finest vocalists.

  1. I didn't follow all of the rules, but I did put together a playlist this week...and there's a little surprise too.
    Love the Dusty Springfield set. I think we share the same favorite Dusty Spring field song. Have a wonderful week-end.

  1. That Jacques Brel/Rod McKuen song is incredibly passionate. I love the lyrics you've highlighted.

  1. "The Look of Love" is one of my favs. Have a great Friday.

    Great choices Trav. I remember Dusty Springfield when she was with The Springfields!

  1. YAY Dusty!!! I almost did a 15 song set, because I could not decide...but restrained myself!


  1. Oh I remember Dusty. I've wailed those tunes more than once!

    Ne Me Quitte Pas is one of my all time favorite songs and I do enjoy the Rod McKuen lyric even though it is a subtle change from the Jaques Brel original meaning. Anyone who hasn't heard the soundtrack for Jaques Brel is Alive and Well and Living In New YOrk, should go hunting. Amanda McBroom's album Chasson has several of the songs as she was in the original show and has recorded these beautiful songs.

  1. Great set,back in the day i enjoyed her as well.Set 24 wow.I just hit set 13.It will be up in a little bit.

  1. I loved her music and her voice. Great set of songs.
