Choon Choosday: Dinah Washington – Mad About The Boy

8 April, 2014

Something a bit different this week. I started humming this for no reason at all a couple of weeks ago and I’ve been meaning to post it as a Choon since then. There are very few recorded songs where everything conjoins to absolute perfection, but this is one. The orchestration with its lush yet yearning strings, that desperate horn phrase at the start, Washington’s sublime vocal, and of course the exquisite lyrics and melody of Noel Coward, one of the greatest songwriters ever to have lived. It’s part celebration of the admiration for another, and (a much bigger) part cry of pain that the other is unobtainable… but it’s 110%
