Wednesday, October 21, 2009 - 05:18 All of You mojo
All of You (1956)

Unfortunately for the otherwise harmless "All of You" it happens to be juuuuuusssst not good enough for Mojo to entirely RAVE about it, and (if that wasn't misfortune enough) they put it on this particular album RIGHT BEFORE one...

'S Wonderful (1959)

Okay, so everybody wins this time around! I DEFY you to find a more pleasant arrangement of a more pleasant song, sung by such a pleasant singer. This is one case where the song title TOTALLY lives up to the experience itself. The whole package...

Just One of Those Things (1960)

Whoah, deja vu, dood! It seems like only a few days ago I reviewed this song. And of course it was. That's the "problem" if you want to call it that, of reviewing Ella...

Ev'ry Time We Say Goodbye (1956)

So we've established that Mojo is not such a HUGE fan of draggy depressing ballads. Having said that, I will now state for the record that I like this song. No, really. Why, you ask, with that tired sigh and the eye roll you've tried so hard to...

How Long Has This Been Going On? (1959)

Ya know, there are some songs Mojo might not be all that thrilled about--meaning slow, draggy ballads for the most part--that Ella makes perfectly listenable through sheer freakin' talent. If this was next up at a karaoke bar (to be honest I've...

Wednesday, October 14, 2009 - 04:52 Love For Sale mojo
Love For Sale (1960)

Okay, so Mojo has these elderly inlaws, both pushing 90. Both enjoy going on the occasional rant, especially if you encourage them by saying something provocative like, oh, say, "Hello". And one of their favorite rants is how Movies and Songs...

Tuesday, October 13, 2009 - 05:47 It Was Just One of Those Things... mojo
Just One of Those Things (1956)

I gotta say, I really enjoy this song, even though Mojo has never been one of those "Just one of those things" kinda gals. It's just the perfect mix. Ella's having a blast, the band is getting their patented Big Band "stings" in between lines,...

Friday, October 9, 2009 - 05:02 Just Another Rhumba mojo
Just Another Rhumba (1959)

If you Google the phrase "Just Another Rhumba" you know what you get? Mostly lyric sites for Ella's version, which seems to...

Thursday, October 8, 2009 - 05:34 The Man I Love mojo
The Man I Love (1960)

While this is not my all-time favorite song, you just GOTTA love how Ella sings it. Here in this live performance she plays with it a little bit, but not so radically that you don't know where she is in the course of the song. It's a fairly...

Wednesday, October 7, 2009 - 05:05 Let's Do It mojo
Let's Do It (Let's Fall in Love) (1956)

Another list song, which Mojo likes. Another Twoo Wuuv song, which Mojo can take or leave. And a hair draggy for my taste, but it's entertaining enough for Mojo to let it slide. Even though it's draggy, Ella still manages to swing it, if...
