No, not the Justin Timberlake song – the 1950’s blues ballad, made famous by Julie London and later recorded by Ella Fitzgerald among others.
Continuing on the tidal wave that is the Susan Boyle phenomenon, a song has been unearthed that she recorded in 1999 for a charity CD – of which apparently only 1000 copies were made. Talk about a hot item to have right about now. The story of Susan’s version of “Cry Me A River” was broken as an exclusive by The Daily Record.
Susan’s performance on Britain’s Got Talent was moving and incredible, but this recording shows her true talent as a vocalist. I think she has a couple of creative career options locked up already – musical theater and now jazz standards. Listen to the track below as well as the original version by Julie London.
