Cole Porter - America's Greatest Songwri

This CD soundtrack shares it's title with the film of Cole Porter's life, starring Kevin Kline, who also had a hand in bringing the story to film. If you don't like silly love songs, this is not for you. But if you listen close, Porter had a way of pushing the limits of decency in his time, and in a way that could slip past the censors. For example, "Just do it, just fall in love" has an obvious double meaning. Many great songs have been written by partners (Robers & Hart, Lerner & Lowe, the Gershwin brothers, etc.). Cole Porter did it all alone. This CD is packed with his best and performed by an impressive list of broadway and pop singers. This allows each tune to be given a very different and fresh interpretation. Sheryl Crow's version of "Love for Sale" earns her new respect. It is my favorite track, but each one is a gem.
