I was recently contacted by One2One Network to have the pleasure of participating in a review for the new Harry Connick Jr. CD-Your Songs. I was so excited because I LOVE Harry Connick, his music and voice are so relaxing and soothing to listen to. I received the CD the day it was released (September 22). What an absolutely beautiful and brilliant CD! I love this type of music and if you're a fan of Harry Connick Jr. this album will definitely not disappoint you.

There's no stopping the talent that Harry Connick Jr has and that talent is shown fully on this CD.

Here is a song list for Your Songs as well as who performed the original version of each song:

>All The Way (Frank Sinatra)

My favorite song on this CD was definitely Your Song. I love the Elton John version, but Harry does it with soul, his voice is so smooth and sexy. This whole CD is perfect for a candlelit dinner and a nice bottle of wine. The arrangements of all the songs are flawless: a romantic CD for sure.
