Erwin Lazaro cglazaro100 Nat King Cole - I Love You For Sentimental Reasons (W. Best) ~ Erwin Lazaro 097
When I sing the music made popular by Nat King Cole I’m inundated with loving memories of my mom. My mom is the reason why I love music so much and while she introduced me to much of the popular music in the 70s on the FM dial, my mom also dedicated equal time to the oldies on the AM dial. I loved everything I heard. My mom would sing and I became a better person for it. I would make my mischief around our home while the music played and my mom sang all day. I didn’t care about stereo. When I was a growing boy in the 70s, the familiar crackling of the AM stations gave me an appreciation for music even before my mom was born.
I’m going to begin a set of covers that I’ve been singing since the times I couldn’t yet sing. LOL. My personal interpretations of these marvelous classics truly come from years of my heart embracing each melody. I hope that all of you will appreciate my expression of music that has helped shape the man that I’ve become.
I have to begin with “I Love You For Sentimental Reasons” and dedicate this comforting melody to my Amazing wife who is too humble to admit that she’s Truly Amazing! “I love you, my Love!” This is my “old-fashioned” way to say I love my wife! J
"(I Love You) for Sentimental Reasons" is a popular song written by William "Pat" Best, later a founding member of The Four Tunes. The credits list Deek Watson, former founding member of The Ink Spots, as a co-writer, though Best has stated that Watson had nothing to do with the creation of the song. Best was a member of Watson's group, The Brown Dots (the song originally was released by Watson's quartet with Joe King as lead vocalist). The song was published in 1945.
