Review: Harry Connick Jr album- Your Songs

Thanks to my involvement with the One2One Network, I had the opportunity to receive and review Harry Connick Jr's new album, Your Songs.  I've loved his music for years- ever since I first heard his music as the soundtrack to When Harry Met Sally.  But, even though I've always liked his songs, I've never actually owned one of his albums, so was excited to get to review this one.

This is a great album of classic songs that everyone knows and loves.  Songs on this album are: All The Way, Just the Way You Are, Can't help Falling In Love With You, And I Love Her, Close to You, Besame Mucho, The Way You Look Tonight, First Time Ever I Saw Your Face, Your Song, Some Enchanted Evening, And I Love You So, Who Can I Turn To?, Smile, and Mona Lisa.

I really enjoyed the arrangements of these songs- it was a nice CD to have on in the background while I went about my day, chasing the kids, trying to get my son to eat, changing lots of diapers.  The songs made me feel like I was living in some sort of movie with a great soundtrack- and I kept finding myself smiling and singing along.  My favorite song off the album is "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face." We used this song on the DVD we made of the first year of my son's life, so whenever I hear it, I think of all those fun memories from his babyhood- makes it easier to deal with the terrible twos when I'm thinking fondly of him! :) 

I highly recommend this album for lovers of Harry Connick Jr. and lovers of these classic songs.  It's a great addition to any music collection.

The album is now on sale in stores and online. Here's a link to the Amazon page where the album is for sale.
