Another Side Of Spring

If your taste in music happens to draw you to jazz, pop, singers and swing channels - or maybe you're just curious - then you are in for a seasonal treat from Power Line's Scott Johnson. His post today is a reprise - with updates - from 2009 about Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most, a 1955 torch song by Fran Landesman and Tommy Wolfe.

As loyal readers know I am a serious fan of Johnson. Somehow I missed his original post, but not this time around. Here is your link to some fine interpretation, a bit of gumshoe work, and an extraordinary performance of the song in question by the incomparable Ella Fitzgerald.

Young readers, I acknowledge it's a fifty year old song performed by a singer who left us almost twenty years ago, but I can assure you both song and singer will be around into your old age.
