Frederica von Stade – Can’t help lovin’ that man – Showboat

E. Goldie

I’ve heard Lena Horne sing this, Ella Fitzgerald sing this, Julie London, and Ava Gardner (from the 1951 movie) sing this, and NO ONE belts out this song with more enthusiasm, verve, raw energy, and great musical range, than Ms. von Stade here. Her jazzy rendition here makes the blood surge with joy, and makes you want to get up and dance! Bravo!! I look forward to discovering more of Ms. von Stade’s works like this and you should too!
