favorite blossom

Extremely happy turn of events today as I found that my favorite Blossom Dearie song of all time has been posted on youtube. It's audio only, but it captures the remarkable talent of the tiny voice that roared. It was introduced by Dodie Goodman in New Faces of 1954, but Blossom made it her own. It's a comedy song, but instead of singing it in a comical manner, she presents it with utmost love and tenderness. It matches her voice perfectly and to me personifies the immense talent that was Blossom.

So please take a listen to "Someone's Been Sending Me Flowers"

Rest in pace, Blossom. You were one of a kind.
