Song of the Day: Billie Holiday, “The Very Thought Of You” #LoIsInDaBl23

Today’s assignment is "a love song from a female artist." I figure you don’t get much more female than Billie Holiday. "The Very Thought Of You" was written by Ray Noble in 1934, who first recorded it with his orchestra and Al Bowlly on vocals that year in the UK. Later that year, it was releaseed in the US and reached #1 on the charts for several weeks. Lady Day recorded it in 1938, and it doesn’t appear to have charted for her.

  1. I love the old ‘standards’, and you can never go wrong with Billie Holiday singing…anything. She could sing the ingredients on a cereal box, and I’d listen. 😉
