Harry Connick, Jr. Your Songs; Review and Giveaway

It’s Friday night, you and your hubs are planning a great evening out! You have a babysitter lined up, the kids are primed, you take your time applying your makeup and getting ready when the worst happens.
 
The babysitter cancels.
 
What is a dressed up girl to do? Well why ruin a perfectly good date night!
If you can’t take yourself out on a date with your husband let the date come to you!
 
My DH and I love to have a date night in when we can. Maybe grill some steaks, bust out the wine and best of all, the MUSIC!! To me, I think that music can transcend moments in time and set the mood, especially on a date.
 
Now the music can vary depending on the evening but I will tell you that the best date night and mood music is bar none Harry Connick Jr. His voice to me is like a lullaby, soothing, romantic, and just has a way to put you at ease and get you moving all at the same time. He has that make you melt like butter voice. So you can imagine how awesome his new CD “Your Songs” is to listen to on a date or even an evening where you want to relax, unwind, and enjoy since he sings some fabulous classics.
 
The folks of the One2OneNetwork are helping to promote the new album and I was lucky to get a copy before the release date of September 22nd and I love it! Not only for a date night but also because after a long day with the kids, listening to an absolutely beautiful man singing in my ear is heavenly.
 
Some of the classics Harry Connick Jr. performs are “Just The Way You Are” by Billy Joel, “First Time I Ever Saw Your Face” by Roberta Flack, and “All the Way” by the extraordinary Frank Sinatra. These classics coupled with Harry’s style and grace, a full jazz big band and string orchestra put you in such a wonderful mood and some of them make you want to get and dance!
 
Now if you love Harry as much as I do (in the music sense…..though he is delicious looking, has a wonderful sense about him and I would be a wet noodle if I ever met him) you can catch his upcoming TV appearances promoting his new album. For those of you who want to catch this delicious dish talking about his new album and performing tune in on these dates:
  • 9/25 – Oprah “Live Friday”
  • 9/28 – Today Show
  • 9/29 – The View

    I prefer Harry the singer..but maybe that is because he hasn't done enough movies!

    We only have date night at home with our nursling but we try to make a point of putting everyone to bed and connecting w/each other at least once a week to catch up. We both love Harry and I will probably run out and buy this if I don't win 🙂
    Thanks mama!

    Oh, I really liked him in Copycat- probably not his best work but it was cool seeing such a great guy play someone so psycho.

  • rutgersgal Sep 27, 2009, 5:49 pm

    I would love this CD as it has plenty of my favorites on it. Guess I would have to take "Some Enchanted Evening" as the one I may most look forward to – just saw the Broadway revival of "South Pacific" and it just stuck with me.

    Speaking of which, why choose between Harry the singer and Harry the actor? How about the Glenn Close tv version of "South Pacific" where he was fantastic as Lt. Cable? Better yet, here's hoping Harry comes back to Broadway!

  • MOMFOREVERANDEVER Sep 27, 2009, 7:43 pm

    ok his voice makes me weak at the knees and he is a doll in all aspects

  • MOMFOREVERANDEVER Sep 27, 2009, 7:45 pm

    i like it all- acting, singig- his lifetime movie about the breast cancer doc was amazing, his recent performance on oprah was sexy and took my heart away when he said he loves his family- he loves taking them here and there…he does alot of community service. Ok he has style he has class, he……( I bet you think I am going to be durty) is such a fine looking lass

  • 1agordon Sep 27, 2009, 8:17 pm

    I want to win it for my mother, who loves Harry Connick.
