SIMPLY RED   “Every Time We Say Goodbye”   from his album Simplified

This is one of my all time favorite songs. Words and music by Cole Porter for a stage show in 1944.

The lyrics are appreciated viscerally and down to your soul. One of the cleverest lyric lines in music occurs when it goes, “There’s no love song finer, but how strange the change from major to minor, every time we say goodbye.”

If  you listen carefully you might be able to appreciate the change in chord progression during that line from A flat major to A flat minor—a brilliant musical moment where the music and lyrics match exactly and the meaning is deepened by the chord change.

LANA DEL REY “Blue Velvet.”    This song is from 1950, and Tony Bennett was the first to have a hit with it.  Lana Del Rey is a currently active recording star who made this version first in 2012, and it was well received.

David Lynch, who made the movie of the same name, liked it very much. Del Rey is a glamorous star who wore an off -the-rack dress from the mall to the Grammy Awards.

The version of Blue Velvet below is from her album Born to Die–the Paradise Edition (2018)

Her latest album was nominated but did not win at the 2020 Grammys. It is very good.
