Blossom Dearie - Just One Of Those Things (Brazilian Girls Remix) (mp3)

I'll climax my little Verve Remixed 3 series with this smoking mix of Cole Porter's Just One Of Those Things, sung here by Blossom Dearie (from Give Him the Ohh-La-La (Verve)), and remixed by the Brazilian Girls, who have been surging in popularity.

Yeah, I'll just come out and say this version is red-hot. The bass line goes oh-so-low, and frames, rather than distracts, from Blossom's sultriness. The electronic effects are a sort of digital fountain of youth. You'll swear she's in her early twenties, that her voice was recorded with the music this year, rather than in 1957, and that she is supple and sassy, and dances and slithers as she sings.

Having said all that, the bass line in the original Blossom Dearie version will shake you no less.

And having posted those, why the hell not throw in another version by yet another Verve artist: the great Ella Fitzgerald.

This will probably be one of my favourite music posts: every song had me from the get go. Excellent selections.

Thought you might love these, too, maybe as much as I love them.

More even, I bet. I went and bought most of her tracks from that album on iTunes (Blossom Dearie).
