Five for Friday: One Song Five Arrangements

Stardust was written by Hoagy Carmichael in the 1920s. It has never gone out of style. It’s been sung and played by thousands of musicians. And, yet, we do not tire of it. Here’s five, including one by the composer.

By the songwriter Hoagy Carmichael  

Ella Fitzgerald

By Michael Buble’

By Willie Nelson

Natalie Cole

Thursday’s Music Spot: A new feature

I have been listening to a lot of great music lately. So I have decided to take the Song out of the Weekly Spotlight and give it its own Feature. Consequently, on Thursdays, I will feature a song I have taken to recently. The songs will range from pop to folk to jazz to classical to blues and back again. Some will be new releases; some will be older. And some back in the Old School days. My tastes are pretty eclectic and there will be no repeats. I may repeat the artists but not the songs. And some will come with commentary and some may not. All are there for your listening pleasure.

Today’s is a Willie Nelson. For a man eighty-five years young, he’s still got the goods. The song is “True Love” off his 2017 album, “God’s Problem Child”.
