Come Fly with Me
I listened to Michael Bublé’s Come Fly with Me CD before I watched the DVD that came with it. The CD is great. The 28-year-old Frank Sinatra/Bobby Darin-influenced Canadian crooner is a fabulous singer. Well-known standards like “My Funny Valentine,” “Mack the Knife” and “Fever” are delivered with beauty and panache. But once you watch the DVD, there’s really no going back. Besides being wonderful to listen to, Bublé is heaven to watch—a savvy and smooth entertainer and utterly adorable with a mischievous twinkle in his eyes. The mixture of concert footage from around the world with Bublé’s between-gigs chit-chat and goofing around with band mates makes for very captivating viewing. Bublé’s cover of the Gibb brothers’ “How Can You Mend a Broken Heart” is lovely, and, if you’re like me, his breathtaking version of “The Way You Look Tonight” will have you hitting the replay button … more than once.
