He’s Sure the Boy I Love, Bette Midler and Darlene Love

Two legends bring girlish joy and womanly wit to the Crystals gem, featured on Midler’s thoroughly charming It’s The Girls.

Say You Love Me, Jessie Ware

Ware’s airy but supple soprano is by turns sultry and nakedly vulnerable on this spare, spacious slow-burner from Devotion.

Innocence, Electric Youth

The synth duo conjures an eerie mix of purity and foreboding on this pounding, soaring number from Innerworld.

Red Cups Up, Joey Sommerville

The soul-jazz trumpeter and friends get the funk out on this sly, exuberant track from the ironically titled Overnight Sensation.

I Cover the Waterfront, Annie Lennox

Lennox lends her shivery warmth and easy elegance, and a beautifully understated melancholy, to the standard, included on Nostalgia.

I Remember You, Hilary Kole

Kole wields her creamy, dreamy voice with simple understated bliss on this playful reading of the Johnny Mercer classic, on A Self-Portrait.

Only the Young, Cynthia Felton

Felton’s silvery vocals caress a gorgeously wistful arrangement on Cynthia Felton Sings The Nancy Wilson Classics: Save Your Love For Me.

Songbird, Anna Wilson

Wilson rediscovers the aching purity of Christine McVie‘s enduring ballad, among other tunes, on Jazzbird/Songbird.

Annie’s Song, John Denver

It’s still tough to resist this tender showcase for the late singer/songwriter’s limpid tenor, now available on All Of My Memories: The John Denver Collection.

Joy to the World, Earth, Wind & Fire

Celebrate Christmas – or anything – early, with the eternally groovy group, whose Holiday has already arrived
