This is one of those standards that seems to be done differently by everyone I’ve ever heard do it, and so far, it’s always been great. My first time hearing this song was when I was in 8th grade, in the movie Who Framed Roger Rabbit? (That might be the case for most people my age.) In college I fell in love with Sinéad O’Connor’s very unexpected rendition, and recently I heard an interview on the radio with Judith Owen that included her version, this one. It’s jaunty and danceable and well worth a listen.
