Song of the Day: 'Elusive Buttertfly''

'elusive butterfly' had a haunting quality about it when bob lind released it in  1966. it's been covered by any number of artists each one adding to it well. it's one of those standards that will remain popular for years to come. simply put it is a 'beautiful' song where melody and lyric are perfectly joined together.

petula clark added her own 'naturalness' to it with her cover. pet always had the ability to make her cover stand on it's own alongside the original if not rising above it. in this case her cover surpassed the original by miles.

the nicest surprise came a decade ago when jane olivor covered it. her voice and the arrangement recaptured the 'haunting' feeling it had seemingly lost over the years. thank you jane. she made the butterfly elusive again.

Jane Olivor Again



'bury my lovely'



Happy Birthday Jane Olivor

i love jane olivor's voice and 95% of her song choices which isn't to shabby really. jane should have been bigger with a wider audience. was it poor promotion or just right choices at the wrong moment. well anyway...happy birthday jane.

just a few of my favorites.


'one more ride on the merry-go-round'




'the greatest love of all'

and from the 1979 academy awards 'the last time i felt like this' with jane and johnny mathis
