The only time I heard about Canadian jazz crooner, Michael Buble, was when my brother received a copy of his CD three years ago. We didn't even know how to pronounce his last name. We called him Michael "Bubble". My mom was a Frank Sinatra fan in her early days. So having listened to this young googly-eyed Buble sang the standards somehow brought back happy memories of her and dad and a couple of young guys who courted her. Michael Buble does not only make girls cry. (His song "Home" has a happy-sad effect on me, but not exactly suicidal :p) On positive note, he does make my olds happy, so happy they keep buying his album. I'm posting somewhere here Michael Buble's watercolor portrait which I copied from his CD cover.

Gotta love Michael Buble. There are plenty of covers of jazz classics, but he brings some real emotion to the songs. I think it's grand when a song has an actual emotional effect on listeners. Most music doesn't anymore. I do love his covers, some more than the originals (with the exception of the Sinatra covers). For instance, I couldn't stand Moondance, the original. But his remake is sublime. =] Anyway.
