Beat o’ My Heart

4 03 2011

Beat o’ My Heart—J. Burke/H. Spina, 1934 (Recorded March 4, 2011) Here’s an old tune that I originally picked up from an Al Bowlly/Ray Noble recording. Tony Bennett did a fantastic up-tempo version on his excellent latin-inspired Beat of My Heart LP, which was released in 1957. Neither version had the verse, though, but I was lucky enough to come across the sheet music for the tune. I’m not much of a sight reader of music, so I had to struggle a bit to make sense of all those squiggly lines until I was able to figure out the intro.

I’m sort of on a roll with recording and posting tunes. This’ll be the last one for the week, though. I’ll probably get back into it next Wednesday or so. Thanks for listening!

This is GREAT Patsy! What a comeback after your cold. You nail four of my favourites (nr 18-21) and introduce another great song to me (nr 22).

I really enjoyed listening to them.
