Warm Face, Warm Hands, Warm Feet...

Weekly Song Sketch

Photobucket


This week's song sketch is written by the marvelous Lerner and Loewe for
My Fair Lady. Despite the fact that this song always performed so exuberantly, it always seems beautifully reflective and wistful. It may actually be my favorite My Fair Lady song.

I had planned on linking to the Red Cross because the bitterly cold weather has surely caused high electricity bills for those who already have trouble making ends meet. Unfortunately, a much more immediate need has come up in Haiti so it may be that Haiti is where our money could be of more help. However, I am still linking to Red Cross where you can donate locally (which would help struggling families pay their bills) or internationally to help out Haiti.

If you would like a copy of the song, just let me know in the comment section below! If it's your first time requesting a song, please be sure to include your email address.

P.S. Feel free to follow me! I promise only ever to lead you to bright, sunny places!

  6. Great version of a wistful song - you also really nailed the mix on it - it sounds like it could be a track on either of your albums... I hope another album is making its way to us all soon? (hope hope)
