293: Old Devil Moon...

Hi.
Today a little tribute to a popular song composed by Burton Lane,
with lyrics by E.Y. Harburg for the 1947 musical Finian's Rainbow.
-
I guess most of you are familiar with it [:-)
-
I look at you and suddenly,
Something in your eyes I see
Soon begins bewitching me.
It's that old devil moon
That you stole from the skies.
It's that old devil moon
In your eyes.
-
You and you glance
Make this romance
Too hot to handle.
Stars in the night
Blazing their light
Can't hold a candle
To your razzle-dazzle.
-
You've got me flyin' high and wide
On a magic carpet ride
Full of butterflies inside.
Wanna cry, wanna croon,
Wanna laugh like a loon.
It's that old devil moon
In your eyes.
-
Just when I think, I'm
Free as a dove.
Old devil moon,
Deep in your eyes,
Blinds me with love.

Man, your selections are getting more voluminous as time goes on!

I know I won't get through ALL of these version anytime soon but these comps have helped point the way to some artists I'm not so familiar with.

This time it's Enrico Rava - one of those artists I "should" be familiar with but am not for whatever reason. The version here has me seeking out more so thanks for your guidance my friend!

Tom, good luck with it, it's over SIX hours the same song! [:-)

Cheeba, I know, there are some versions here, one shouldn't be bothered with, but than again, who am I to decide? with this large quantity of versions, there's bound to be some quality somewhere too, right?
best of luck completing the shack btw, that is/was a mighty fine job with LOADS of surprises along the way! thanks for dropping by.
peace, E-mile
