Let’s begin with a few songs from the early sixties just to warm up!
Rodgers and Hart
I took one look at you
That’s all I meant to do
And then my heart stood still
My feet could step and walk
My lips could move and talk
And yet my heart stood still
Though not a single word was spoken
I could tell you knew
That unfelt clasp of hands
Told me so well you knew
I never lived at all
Until the thrill of that moment when
My heart stood still

One great way to love ‘old popular tunes’ is to listen to Chet Baker sing them.
