You Don’t Know Me

5 08 2012

You Don’t Know Me—C. Walker/E. Arnold, 1955 (Recorded August 5, 2012) I recorded this Eddy Arnold Country classic for the Ukulele Cosmos Monthly Invitational challenge. It’s a great lost-love ballad and has always been one of my very favorite tunes. Of course, Ray Charles’s version from 1962 is the most popular take on this tune, rising to #2 on the Billboard charts for that year. In my research, I was pleased to find out that Carmen McRae also cut this tune, in 1956. Anybody who knows me knows what a Carmen McRae nut I am; the song has taken on a new meaning for me now that I have heard it as stamped by one of the queens of jazz.

I first heard “You Don’t Know Me” on YouTube by a man named Dan Hardin. I loved it. So I ended up recording it! What a GREAT GREAT song.
