Siren songs

Since Steve mentioned Lena Horne singing "Stormy Weather" (in Cabin in the Sky) and Marlene Dietrich singing "Black Market" (in A Foreign Affair)...


  1. Sorry, Hays, but you can't beat Dinah Washington's rendition of "Unforgettable."

  2. One of my jazz instructors back in the day would go on and on about Lena Horne's Stormy Weather. Having recently gotten into some professional music editing of late, I can appreciate the caliber of musicians back then who didn't have the tools we have today to clean up all manner of poor musicianship.
