STACEY KENT'S ART - a world-class vocalist! LISTEN and you'll see! UTTERLY UNIQUE...

Updated: Nov 3, 2021

"NEVER LET ME GO"

by Livingston and Evans - 1956


Sung by the amazing Stacey Kent

in her 2009 album

BREAKFAST ON THE MORNING TRAM


(i just discovered her!

after she's been doing world-class singing

for decades!

where have i been?)


the song -- "Never Let Me Go"

with music by Jay Livingston and

lyrics by Ray Evans

was written for the 1956 Paramount Pictures Film

"The Scarlet Hour"


it's always fascinating to me

(that word again!)

how great songs

have a life of their own


continuing on

like buried treasures

for singers to discover

and to breathe-new-life-into

decade-after-decade

generation-after-generation


"Never Let Me Go"

is a perfect example of this happening!


a bit dangerous...

living/loving this way


but if you want the real thing...

you've gotta risk

the real thing

Chet Baker does a great job (as always)

with a different (but related) song --

"You Don't Know What Love Is"


Here are the beginning lyrics...


You don't know what love is

'Til you've learned the meaning of the blues

Until you've loved a love you've had to lose

You don't know what love is...


<<< >>>


if you're wondering "what love is"

or at least ONE lover's half of it

listen to Stacey Kent sing

"NEVER LET ME GO"


Stacy's done LOTS of beautiful singing

for DECADES

with magical support from MANY

world-class musicians


watch her on YouTube


and/or via Amazon
