Rod Stewart: Fly Me To The Moon…The Great American Songbook Volume V
Fly Me To The Moon…The Great American Songbook is the fifth volume in the multi-platinum album series from Rod Stewart, featuring twelve more timeless covers to feast your ears on.
If you’re a Rod fan, and grew up in the era of his music, I guarantee you’ll enjoy this album of familiar, classy American favorites done right by the man himself. Stewart has described these songs as “like chocolate” because they’re so addicting to sing, and indeed this is an album all ages can tolerate and even enjoy, regardless of musical taste, as all songs here are rightful pop classics.
Covers include “That Old Black Magic,” “Beyond the Sea,” “My Foolish Heart,” “Moon River,” “What a Difference a Day Makes,” “September in the Rain” and the title track. This album also has songs you can dance to, which perhaps makes this volume stand out among previous songbooks. I recommend “Love Me or Leave Me,” “I’ve Got You Under My Skin,” “I Get a Kick Out of You,” and “I’ve Got the World on a String.”
Clive Davis and Richard Perry produced the album.
