Oooh! Pretty music!! (my very serious review of the new Michael Buble Album: Crazy Love)

Photobucket

Ok. First off, a confession. I absolutely love oldies and jazz. I also love Sting. I am not the world's most discerning music connoisseur. But I know what I like and I LOVE Michael Buble. I also love Harry Connick, Jr and I think the two are really similar-- they've both got that Sinatra re-born groove goin' on. This is one of those (few) albums that I turn on and then can't sit still! And listen to over and over! I love it :) I really do. Here's a sample for ya:



So, am I right or am I right? Is that not FUN? And catchy? And it will be in stores starting today, just in time for the start of the Christmas shopping season. You can even get it on Amazon.

Hah. Who am I kidding? Y'all know I don't start shopping for Christmas till Dec 20th. But maybe this year...

My absolute favorite on this album is "All I Do Is Dream of You" (track 5) because of memories of the musical and who doesn't love Gene Kelly?? And Michael Buble's rendition is so... peppy! and upbeat! It makes me want to dance. I'm actually listening to it right now and dancing a little in my chair. The kids are asleep and no one will know. except y'all and no one will believe you if you tell anyone anyways.

And also? Is this cuteness, or what?

He reminds me of my brother, who's always been that kind of guy who can sell buns to old ladies (*snicker, snicker*). Go on, ask me, you know you're dying to hear that story!

Michael Buble can sell me buns any old day. That's all I'm sayin'.

Neyah..... it's ok. I'm not rushing out to buy it.

I like it, too. Now, if I only actually listened to anything that didn't have kids on it I might buy it myself! ugh.
Oh, and you dancing in your chair can't be any worse (according to you!) than you dancing on your feet;)

Hossssaaaaannnnnaaaa! How dare you say such a thing? For shame! :) I agree about how he looks like Sam. Always did think that. All the cool singers do. Also always thought Sam would beat them all to a hollow, send them packing, etc., etc., did start to sing like that, himself. Who agrees?

I think Buble is a remarkable talent. His voice and style are soothing. I'm also a Sting fan. Great post.

Hosanna said...

I like his voice - a LOT. But this is just too "cutesy" for him! Sorry Tess/Lis...... And I like Sting also - but only his older stuff, like the Police....... yeah.
Haven't heard Sam sing for a while.... he should have blessed us all with a tune at the wedding - serenaded Mina - how romantic that would have been!!!!!! :)
