Hsin Yeow’s thoughts:
Michael Bublé and Rod Stewart have done wedding singers like me a whole lot of good. The classic love songs they covered recently are very popular with my clients, so it makes it easier for me to source for the mp3s.
Although I enjoy singing L-O-V-E and When I Fall In Love, two of the most frequently requested jazz songs, here are some of my favourites which I’ve never had the chance to perform before:
– My One And Only Love (Update: Sung at Lynette and Leslie’s wedding!)
I love everything about this song: the heartfelt lyrics; the touching melody; and how both elements combine seamlessly to create aural magic. Go listen to the version by Sting, it never fails to reduce me to mush.
I find the tune of this song so infectious it makes my two left feet feel like dancing. Impossible to perform without a full jazz band, so I guess I’ll have to keep wishin’ and hopin’.
– Let’s Fall In Love (Update: Sung at Simon and Shu Ling’s wedding!)
Beautiful in its simplicity, the song just makes me want to ask the person next to me, “Let’s fall in love, shall we?”
– I’m Beginning To See The Light (Update: Sung at Jamie and Charlie’s wedding!)
The lyrics are so naughty witty and funny. I can imagine singing the song with a sly wink and a knowing grin.
– That’s All (Update: Sung at Lynette and Leslie’s wedding!)
This song is perfect for a wedding, and I really identify with its lyrics.
There you have it: my wish list!
