Episode 2

Episode date - August 3, 2018

How Music Changed

    Part two of our alphabetical “Songs of Cole Porter” series does pretty much what I hoped that it would, bouncing back and forth through his chronology to present the variety of his work.

    This show moves freely between well-known, still popular numbers and a few lesser-known songs that have almost been forgotten, with an emphasis toward the latter.

    Featured songs include;

    At Long Last Love – Bobby Short

    Be a Clown – Judy Garland and Gene Kelly

    Begin the Beguine – Artie Shaw & His Orchestra 

    Begin the Beguine – Tony Bennett

    Blow, Gabriel, Blow – Ethel Merman

    Bruch Up Your Shakespeare – Harry Clark and Jack Diamond

    C’est Magnifique – Lilo and Peter Cookson

    Ca, C’est L’amour – Tony Bennett

    Come to the Supermarket in Old Peking – Barbra Streisand

    Do I Love You? – Ella Fitzgerald

    Don’t Fence Me In – Bing Crosby & The Andrews Sisters

    Don’t Look at Me That Way – Irene Bordoni

    Channel 25 - Cole Porter
