Last Friday I posted about the theme song of the classic TV show Bewitched. Today I’m adding two vocal versions. The first is sung by Steve Lawrence and the second by Peggy Lee. Steve does a perfectly serviceable Steve Lawrence impersonation (people often say he tries to imitate Frank but I think he’s more self-referential than that). Peggy, always marching to her own drummer, takes it on as a swinging jazz waltz. Dig them both…
Both Great .. but I am leaning towards the Steve Lawrence as I kind of dig that whole fast lounge act vibe and Costa is always great
I’m with you. Peggy moving it into jazz-waltz-land makes me think she didn’t really trust the material to begin with.It never became cool to like Steve Lawrence but I’ve always dug him–especially without Eydie.
