I don’t keep up with music trends these days. I’m too busy being miffed that my beloved 80s music is now on the oldies station!!! The old stuff and Contemporary Christian are what top my chart now. (The REAL oldies, not the stuff I shouldn’t have listened to in high school.)
When offered the chance to review To Be Loved, Michael Bublè’s newest album, I gladly accepted. It is a fun mix of four original songs and ten covers.
I love the old sound of this album! The music is true to the era of each song. One particularly-adorable song has a very retro Reese Witherspoon singing along. (You’re not alone, I didn’t know she could sing either.)
My favorite is “To Love Somebody” .
Here’s a test to see if you were alive during the 70s (or if you are too young, to see if your parents raised you right):
Can you sing these lyrics with the proper dramatic emphasis and pauses?
You don’t know what it’s like, baby
YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT IT’S LIKE
To love somebody
To love somebody
The way I.Love.You.
Did you pass? –>Answer Key Extra Credit if you made your voice sound funny.
(And yes, I know it technically came out in the late 60s, but I wasn’t alive then.)

2. It’s A Beautiful Day (original)
3. To Love Somebody
4. Who’s Lovin You
