My XM radio's 40's station is where I recently discovered, and fell in love with, the voice of Margaret Whiting. The recordings of her performing Moonlight in Vermont, A Tree in the Meadow, and my personal favorite, You Do, are so clear and pretty, they've actually reduced me to tears.
So I went on YouTube today to try and find one of those recordings to share with you, and was disappointed when I found none. I instead came upon THIS lovely piece, The Lies of Handsome Men, and I knew immediately it's what I wanted to post today.
Like Rosemary Clooney, Margaret performed well into her later years, when her voice was much older and harsher. This is a recording from those "twilight years," so you won't get to hear the clear, sweet tones of her earlier days. But I think it's lovely, in it's own way. And the slide show is just, well, DELICIOUS! Swoon with me for a minute, won't you?.......
