Why I Sang It
I heard this song many years ago and ignored it. It wasn't until the summer of 2019 that I was reintroduced to it by Ed Fast from Ed Fast and Conga Bop. He recorded an amazing remake of the song in which he featured the vocalist Linda Ransome. The music he wrote was so full bodied and strong.
I listened to the lyrics and fell in love with what it said. From there I listened to, of course, Ella, Sarah Vaughn and Shirley Bassey. These are some of the voices that I truly love. Shirley's version was my favorite.
I found this piano version done by Rob Landeros which I found to be absolutely haunting. I had to sing it. I had to.
I hope you enjoy it.
