As I was walking through the North End tonight, a song I haven’t listened to in ages popped on my iPod.
I prefer this version of “I can’t give you anything but love, Baby” to Doris Day’s faster, more upbeat version:
To me, this song isn’t necessarily a happy one. It’s more meloncholy. You would think, considering how many times I have seen Bringing Up Baby, I would feel otherwise. Just watch how the song is played and used at the end of this trailer.
In this instance, “I Can’t Give you Anything But Love” is anything but a sad, slow song. I have no idea what got me thinking like this about this song. The only way I can rationalize it is that I happened to be in the mood for Billie Holiday over anything else and the song that serendipitously played was the song from my favorite movie.
