A ‘Thoughtful’ Fantastic Foursome   2 comments

Something a little different on today’s Fantastic Foursome. I’m still giving you four different versions of a song and asking for you to vote for your favorite, but I’ll tell you right up front that I’ll be voting for Nat King Cole. His rendition of “The Very Thought Of You” is one of my all time favorites.

The song was written by bandleader Ray Noble in 1934, and it probably wouldn’t surprise you to hear that one of the first hit records of the song featured his band and its star vocalist Al Bowlly. In the years since, it has been recorded by just about everybody and has also made appearances in several movies, including Casablanca and Young Man With A Horn.

  1. It has to be Nat. Nobody can ever get the softness, I can’t explain it but it’s there.

  2. I agree 100%. 😉
