Today’s song is I Try by Macy Gray. Released in September 1999, it topped the charts in Australia, New Zealand and Ireland, reached number 5 in the US, and number 6 in the UK. Like yesterday’s song, it’s actually Ben Taylor’s version which reminded me of this song.
This beautiful song dates from 1952 when it was first recorded by Sue Thompson and soon after by Patti Page. You Belong To Me has subsequently been recorded by many artists, including Michael Bublé, Carla Bruni, Bing Crosby, Johnny Mathis, Vonda Shepherd and Rod Stewart. It’s actually Ben Taylor’s version which I’ve been listening to recently which made me decide to play the song today.
