In doing research for my song each day I can normally find information fairly easily about the stories behind the songs. However, there doesn’t seem to be much information about A Cradle In Bethlehem anywhere online other than the fact it was written by Alfred Bryan and Larry Stock! I’ve known this song for years as it was always one of my favourites on the Nat King Cole Christmas album. Having said that I’d never played it until yesterday when I recorded it for my 365Songs project! If you know anything more about the song, please let me know in the comments!
Today I’m playing Norah Jones’ Come Away With Me, the title song from her 2002 album. This is a lovely 3/4 jazz ballad which was released as a single in 2003. I hope I’ve done it justice.
One Last Love Song was released by the Beautiful South as an extra track on their 1994 compilation album Carry On Up The Charts. I’ve always loved this song and hope you enjoy my performance!
