    Default Billie Holiday songs

    I noticed that the version of Detour Ahead in the 1200 tunes is the Bill Evans version. After listening to some vocalists like Billie Holiday and Mark Murphy do it, I discovered a different set of changes.

    Me, Myself and I
    By Irving Gordon, Allan Roberts & Alvin S. Kaufman
    1937

    Like Fred Astaire, Billie Holiday had the privilege of introducing a great many standards, and this is one of the most charming. It was written by former song parodist Gordon, with lyrics by Roberts and Kaufman, his collaborators at Mills Music, then the largest independent song publisher in the world. Gordon was also responsible for Nat King Cole's "Unforgettable".

    Lyrics:

    Me, myself and I
    Are only loving you.
    We all think you’re wonderful, we do.

    Me, myself and I
    Have just one point of view:
    We’re convinced there’s no one else like you.

    It can’t be denied dear,
    You brought the sun to us,
    We’d be satisfied dear,
    If you belonged to one of us.

    So if you pass me by,
    Three hearts will break in two,
    ‘Cause me, myself and I
    Are all in love with you.

    Recorded By:

    Thank you in advance!!


    "Without Your Love"
    Performed by Billie Holiday
    Was composed by John Lange-Fred Stryker

    A chart, no, but the chords, yes.

    The recording is hard to hear, but this is, as they say, close enough for jazz.

    Without Your Love - Lange and Stryker


    Cheers,
