New Year's Eve 2012

Nancy Wilson - Yesterday's Love Songs, Today's Blues

Because it just felt so darned right, I thought it was the perfect time for the brilliant Nancy Wilson to sing a song written by the legendary songwriter Frank Loesser. Loesser was know for writing music for Broadway, with 'Guys And Dolls' and 'How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying'. However, he wrote "What Are You Doing New Year's Eve" with no show or movie in mind, simply as a great song. And we should all be happy it was recorded by Nancy Wilson, appearing on her album 'Yesterday's Love Songs, Today's Blues'. It made the Billboard Hot 100 Top 25 twice, in 1965 and 1967.

You can purchase 'Yesterday's Love Songs, Today's Blues' from iTunes and Amazon.
