This original motion picture soundtrack \"De-Lovely\" is a proof that Cole Porter\'s music means forever. The staying power of his music is simply amazing -- charming and timeless songs with wonderful melodies that will stay on in the hearts of musicians, performers, artists, music lovers and listeners through the years. Although his life was truly a musical drama and the later years were tragic after one of his legs was amputated, Porter will always be remembered as one of the most brilliant composers America ever produced.
This one gem of a CD covers some of the most loved compositions of Porter. I enjoyed the movie, which showcased Kevin Kline\'s versatility in being a very good actor, singer and dancer. He portrayed the role effortlessly. Likewise with Ashley Judd, she\'s not only a fabulous actress but she can sing too, in \"True Love,\" a duet with Tayler Hamilton and \"In The Still Of The Night\" with Kevin Kline.
One of the best tracks is Diana Krall\'s jazzy and superb rendition of \"Just One Of Those Things\" which I enjoyed listening with a few repeats. I also enjoyed listening to Sheryl Crow\'s version of \"Begin The Beguine\" which she delivers splendidly with a Bossa Nova touch. It\'s another track that deserves a few repeats.
In \"Night And Day,\" Kevin is coaching John Borrowman.... \"you can sing this.... just don\'t think about the melody....just think about the words...just sing it with me....like the beat beat beat of the tom-tom.....night and day....try E flat....day and night why is it so?\"........ This song is my all-time favorite and I consider it one of Porter\'s musical treasures.
Not to forget Natalie Cole\'s contribution to this soundtrack, she deserves an applaud for her lovely rendition of \"Every Time We Say Goodbye.\" The most moving track is the romantic rendition of \"In The Still Of The Night\" with Kevin playing the piano and Ashley joining him in singing this all-time classic. Porter performs in the finale \"You\'re The Top.\"
Although some of the tracks are somewhat obscure, at least the above-mentioned tracks are worth listening to, and still deserve my recommendation. It will be a lovely addition to your collection of original motion picture soundtracks. ~ Rebecca*rhapsodyinblue*
