The Backstory: The Music of Romance

Hi guys-

My grandparents both love music, my Grandfather especially. Instead of giving my grandmother flowers, my Grandfather Jim would provide my grandmother with records of the music that meant most to them at the time. In almost all the letters Jim wrote to Margie referred to the specific songs that were the soundtrack to their romance.

I've put together a playlist of these songs on Rhapsody - you can access it here:
The playlist includes original and recent versions of the following songs:
Memories of You - Frank Sinatra
The Nearness of You - Ella Fitzgerald
I'll Never Smile Again - Tommy Dorsey
Only Forever - Bing Crosby
Frenesi - Artie Shaw
Song of the Volga Boatman - Glenn Miller
Maria Elena - 101 Strings Orchestra
Daddy - Sammy Kaye
Blue Champagne - Glenn Miller
