Too Darn Hot (1960)

Finally, a song that totally and completely lives up to its title! Folks, it doesn't get any better than this. Okay, so we've already reviewed the studio version of Too Darn Hot...

That Certain Feeling (1959)

This is a pleasant enough song, although one that is almost completely forgettable. I mean, these are ALL Broadway show tunes from the Twenties, Thirties and Forties. We're not dealing with Major Social Issues, people, we're mostly dealing with...

Get Out of Town (1956)

Sigh. Okay, so Mojo's not that keen on ultra-slow dirgey sort of songs. If it wasn't Ella singing, I probably wouldn't bother with this song. As it is, if I am listening to hours and hours of Ella, I'll frequently skip this one. There. I said it...

Wednesday, November 11, 2009 - 05:17 I am in Love mojo
I am in Love (1956)

Ya know, with all the painful metaphors songwriters have used through the ages to convey the process and sensation of being in love, it's somehow refreshing to have a song with a single declarative sentence for its premise: I Am in...

Thursday, November 12, 2009 - 06:36 Lorelei mojo
Lorelei (1960)

Being the sheltered, ignorant lass that Mojo has always been, it turns out I don't think I've ever heard of the Lorelei until I first heard this song and looked 'em up. Which I believe was THIS version, since I don't think I sprung for the...
