Something's Gotta Give

Music by Johnny Mercer

Something's Gotta Give" is a popular song with words and music by Johnny Mercer in 1954. It was published in 1955. It was written for and first performed by Fred Astaire in the 1955 musical film Daddy Long Legs, and was nominated for an Academy Award in 1955 as Best Original Song, losing to "Love is a Many Splendored Thing". The song playfully uses the irresistible force paradox which asks what happens when an irresistible force meets an immovable object as a metaphor for a relationship between a vivacious woman and an older, world-weary man. The man, it is implied, will give in to temptation and kiss the woman. The song's lyrics echo the plot of Daddy Long Legs, in which a reserved man in his 50s (Astaire) falls in love with a woman in her early 20s (Leslie Caron).

The Four Freshmen : In Session : 1 CD

The Four Freshmen : In Session

Brian Eichenberger, Curtis Calderon, Vince Johnson and Bob Ferreira, the "new" Four Freshmen, play their own instruments on this sweet-sounding studio recording, which was produced by The Four Freshmen Society. OK, the album is all accompanied, but the smooth, bright, tight-knit harmonies that, for us, define the best of 50s and 60s Vocal Jazz, are here in spades. 11 well-chosen covers, standards such as Cole Porter's "It's All Right With Me," Mercer's moody "Skylark," his lesser-known, bluesy "Early Autumn" and his more upbeat "Something's Gotta Give;" Harold Arlen's "If I Only Had a Brain," "September Song" (with a nice a cappella intro), and the hits just keep on coming with "That Old Feeling" and "You've Changed." The sound that launched dozens of top 40 hits, made millions fall in love while slow dancing, and influenced every male Vocal Jazz quartet that came after the 4Fs is sounding as new, and as fresh, as ever!

Songlist: It's All Right With Me, My One And Only Love, Skylark, If Only I Had A Brain, Early Autumn, Something's Gotta Give, How Do You Keep The Music Playing, That Old Feeling, September Song, If I Had You, You've Changed

The McGuire Sisters : Greatest Hits : 1 CD : 31341

The McGuire Sisters : Greatest Hits

The three sisters McGuire indeed have a unity of blend hard to match among the many famous sibling groups. Their popularity was immense, and their cover versions of songs such as "Sincerely" and "Goodnight, Sweetheart, Goodnight," (both originally sung by the Moonglows and Spaniels, respectively) placed higher on the charts than those of their progenitors; the McGuire's sound and image was considered more acceptable to white audiences. While some of the songs, like "He," don't hold up as well over time - the lyrics and orchestrations seem a bit precious - the vivacious delivery is so unabashed, the apparently innate tunefulness so exact, and the arrangements so creative that "Muskrat Ramble" and "Sugartime" leave no doubt as to why the McGuires were loved by so many.

Songlist: Sincerely, Something's Gotta Give, HE, Goodnight, Sweetheart, Goodnight, Picnic, Muskrat Ramble, Ev'ry Day Of My Life, Sugartime, It May Sound Silly, Christmas Alphabet, May You Always, Just For Old Time's Sake
