There are a lot of wonderful versions of this song out there, including Harry Connick Jr.’s, the first one I ever heard. But it’s one of those songs that have been around for a while and have been performed by everyone from Barbara Streisand to Ella Fitzgerald. There is even this delightful duet between Rufus Wainwright and Boy George!
My friend Ricky, possibly knowing that I have a thing for Joseph Gordon-Levit (I am still hoping against hope for a Robin sequel to the Dark Knight series of movies!) introduced me to my new favorite rendition of this song.
Is there a version of this song that really makes your New Year’s celebration? Please share it in the comments! New Year’s Eve is tomorrow night. Is it too early or too late to ask? . . .
