Album of the Day
THIS IS THE NODE AOD FULL TEMPLATE
Canadian performer Michael Bublé played countless forgettable gigs during his rise to stardom, but his stint as a wedding singer in 2000 for the former Prime Minister's daughter would change his life. Among the high-powered guests at the ceremony was hitmaker David Foster, who was sufficiently impressed to produce Bublé's next album. A platinum seller in several countries around the globe, MICHAEL BUBLE glistens with Foster's customary studio sheen, but what makes the collection so enjoyable is Bublé's ability to look at old songs in new ways. Standards like “The Way You Look Tonight” and “Come Fly With Me” lend themselves naturally to Sinatra-esque crooning, but a swingin' big band approach to songs like Van Morrison's “Moondance” or Queen's “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” is surprising and equally effective. Michael Buble turns 40 today, and we'll wish him a happy birthday with his major label debut.
