Music to Watch Girls By [1999 2 CD #1]

Overview

Music to Watch Girls By is a two-disc collection possessing all the coolness necessary for a lounge/vocal thematic disc, plus an admirable range of material, but far too many familiar songs to attract most music fans. For those new to the world of easy listening, however, this could be one of the best places to collect a parade of pop touchstones -- "Up, Up and Away," "Theme from 'A Summer Place'," "Beyond the Sea," "Mack the Knife," "That's Amore," "Wishin' and Hopin'," "Moon River," etc. It's also clear that the compilers didn't simply consult their cultural consciousness; the disc illustrates their knowledge of the vocal genre with some well-placed interstitial songs as well, including "On the Street Where You Live" by Vic Damone, "Fools Rush In (Where Angels Fear to Tread)" by Brook Benton, and "Move Over Darling" by Doris Day. The pacing is excellent, and the sound is crisp and clean.
