  1. Esta linda pessoa aliada a uma voz bastante sensual foi uma das maiores LADYS
    da canção americana, surgida para valer, no inicio dos anos 50. Seu grande HIT foi num filme de far-west em que ela canta CRY ME A  RIVER e dai não parou mais.

    I love this song, and Julie does it best. I have always liked Johnny Mathis on this one, but I keep comparing , and I take this one

      Julie does have a beautiful voice. I feel like her phrasing and pronunciation are a little too hard for my preference though–for that reason, Ella Fitzgerald is my girl!

    • +DavidRussell323 They are all really good.  My fave on this song is Sarah Vaughan.

    Julie was a glamorous woman with sultry vocals.  I love the smoky texture of her voice.  

  5. Misty Lyrics
    Look at me, 
    I’m as helpless as a kitten up a tree;
    And I feel like I’m clingin’ to a cloud,
    I can’ t understand
    I get misty, just holding your hand.

    Walk my way,
    And a thousand violins begin to play,
    Or it might be the sound of your hello,
    That music I hear,
    I get misty, the moment you’re near.

    Can’t you see that you’re leading me on? 
    And it’s just what I want you to do,
    Don’t you notice how hopelessly
    I’m lost
    That’s why I’m following you.

    On my own,
    When I wander through this wonderland alone,
    Never knowing my right foot from my left
    My hat from my glove
    I’m too misty, and too much in love.

    Too misty,
    And too much
    In love

    • +lorenzo magazzeni I thought misty as in misty-eyed.to be so emotional that you might cry. Not knowing her right foot from her left or her gloves from her hat :she was describing being dazed in love. Not confused nor drugged just that lovey-dovy feeling. I dont think it would have been appropriate for people to sing about date raping back then. Women were still stereotyped as soft and hopelessly romantic. But apart from the artist’s intent, anything is open to interpretation 🙂

    • +lorenzo magazzeni guess you don’t know what love is

  7. One of the greatest singers of the last century. I met Julie London at a jazz seminar at university of so miss in the late 1970’s , I.e. Roots of Jazz & she was a great individual, very friendly & we talked about music in general but mainly dixieland jazz which I played that week with several fabulous musicians incl Julie herself singing to incl Peanuts Hucko & Red Calendar of Lawrence Welk fame.

    I will never forget Julie London as she was such a talent & charismatic individual.

  8. Love this song and Julie London does a great vocal interpretation, but the dual flutes doing their “tweety’ thing is a bit too distracting. Remove those and this would be a much better arrangement.

    • I agree. The arranger for this tune, as well as her musical director, thought it would be “cute.” Obviously it wasn’t.

  9. Bring back this kind of music, just love it!

  10. Julie London was a very very talented singer.
    I met her in person at a Jazz festival on campus of university of so miss in 1978. She was very pleasant and mentioned she liked visiting miss.
    I really miss her and her voice on many recordings.

    • +Joe Bowen What a thrill to meet Julie London. I wish I could go back in time to some club in the 1950s and watch her and many others who have passed perform.

    • +Joe Bowen
      You’re right ! She was not known enough in France …..That’s a pity …

    • I heard her in person in a small, intimate setting at a hotel lounge,  it was in the 60s, she was great, though not very personable with the audience, later, I understood she has stage fright!  What a beautiful, sensual, sultry voice she has — no other female singer compares to her voice!  I had her 1955 album, “Julie is her name” and my mother took it away from me, she thought it was too sexy!  But I loved her voice, still do, and bought many albums after that!

    • I met Julie in 1962 at my cousin’s first communion in Davenport, Iowa. She was taking a year off from the spotlight and had moved to a flop house in Davenport’s warehouse district and was volunteering at St. Peter’s Catholic Church Choir. She wasn’t leading the choir, but was simply one of its members. When they completed their song after the homily, I said to my uncle, “See that broad behind the fat lady? I think that’s Julie London.” Sure enough, when mass was over, I followed her to her car (which was a Volkswagen Bug, by the way), and told her how lovely her voice was. She thanked me and gave me a kiss on the cheek. Over the next year, I saw her every Sunday at mass, plus the Wednesday morning mass we went to at school. I’ll always remember it because that was my kindergarten year at Saint Pete’s. It was wonderful being 5 and seeing Julie twice a week. What a beautiful year that was.

    Beautiful voice but the flutes in this arrangement distract and disrupt the mood and flow of the arrangement.

    • Dammit now i cant unheard them

    • I love the flutes.

    • Anybody who hates the flutes are dumbasses and I will punch you in your face one at a time. When I get done with you, your moms will say, Where’d you get the shiner? Your moms will also say, The flutes are beauty-full dah-ling. I cherish the flutes.

    • The flutes are there to represent birds tweeting like on a bright sunny day.

    • Dear arrogent Vic,
          Obviously you number yourself among  those with “Musical Taste”. I AM an arranger and do know plenty about music. This arrangement is a product of it’s time period where this kind of flute accompaniment was popular. It isn’t any more. To me it sounds dated. I would prefer this version without flute, but that is just me.

  12. Move over Johnny Mathis. Julie has taken over.

  13. I love that she does this straight – respecting the melody and lyrics – without egotistically meandering off in a random direction or hanging on notes for the sake of showing off her vocals.

  14. miss her and all the voices of that era. thanks Ms. London, and thanks Errol Garner.

  15. Lovely voice that seemed to sing effortlessly. Her and Jo Stafford – such gifted ladies! Thank you.

  19. This song is about acid.

    • blue cheese cult October 18, 2016 @ 6:01 am

      +ibbotsoni Obviously. I was making fun of all the kids trying to be cool like “This song is about acid.” It is a great song though.

    • Ah sorry. Sense of humour bypass!. Great song indeed.

    • BS!  Has nothing to do with “acid” — only kids trying to be smarty would say that.

    • So you know you sound like a f’in fossil.

    • Sharon Constable January 25, 2018 @ 1:10 pm

      While I agree with the general tone of this thread that the lyrics are not about acid, I maintain that if you DO drop acid, this should be one of the songs you listen to (that recurring flute motif — wow) with a supply of blue cheese at the ready. Btw how do I join your cult?

  20. wonder who did the piano on this….
